Two Town of Essex staff members were recently recognized for their contributions to the Royal Life Saving Society of Canada.

Cynthia Cakebread, Manager of Recreation & Culture, and Sarah Newton, Assistant Manager of Aquatics have been presented with medals by Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell.

Cakebread was presented with the Bar to Service Cross, which honours society members who have served for over 20 years. Newton was presented the Bar to Service Medal, which honours society members who have served for over 10 years.

“These honours indicate the high level of dedication both Cynthia and Sarah have to their field,” said Doug Sweet, Deputy Chief Administrative Officer and Director of Community Services. “Not only are they recognized for their significant contributions to the Lifesaving Society, they also bring that important perspective to their work at the Town of Essex.”
