Local Hero is a project that celebrates and recognizes amazing individuals from Campbell River and surrounding area for performing exceptional acts of service that are selfless and courageous that make our community such a vibrant and rewarding place to live and work.
The 2nd annual Campbell River Mirror and MOWI Local Hero celebration was held on May 16th at the Campbell River No. 1 Fire Hall with over 30 individuals and groups being recognized in 14 categories. It was an emotional evening of moving stories, wonderful people and an expression of a community’s gratitude for the contributions these admirable people made to the life of this region.
All were nominated by members of the community.
