Congratulations to the finalists for this years Bernice Adams Awards. Some of the names will be quite familiar to Citizen Readers, 7 of the 19 finalists have either written for or had stories about them on the site or published in the last year.
If you aren’t familiar with “The Bernice,” the best description I have heard is “The Oscars for Cambridge.”
I am very honoured to be the presenter this year of the Literary Arts/Communication Award.
The chosen recipient for Special Trustee is …Mr. Lary Turner
The winners will be revealed at the Annual Bernice Adams Memorial Awards night, taking place on Friday, May 25, at the Galt Country Club, 750 Coronation Blvd. The evening reception begins at 6:30 pm, and the Awards Ceremony beginning at 7:30 pm.
