Mr. Speaker, the small communities in my riding of Random—Burin—St. George’s remain vibrant because of the many dedicated volunteers who get involved in ensuring our community, our province and our country are better places to live.
I rise today to honour one of those fine individuals. Harold Wells has spent much of his lifetime helping both the towns of Stephenville Crossing and Stephenville. Mr. Wells was recently bestowed a lifetime membership by the board of directors of the International Association of Lions Clubs in acknowledgement of more than half a century of selfless work for others.
Since joining the Lions Club in 1956, Mr. Wells has held every position within the local Stephenville Crossing and Stephenville clubs as well as positions at the district level. Over the years, Mr. Wells has received several awards in recognition of his dedication to Lionism, his community and all residents of Stephenville and Stephenville Crossing.
I ask all members to join me in saluting Harold Wells, a shining example of the best that volunteerism has to offer.
