• Mayor’s City Builder Award – Mrs. Betty Giffin

    Mayor Jim Watson today presented the inaugural Mayor’s City Builder Award to Mrs. Betty Giffin, of Barrhaven, founder of Victoria’s Quilts Canada, a not-for-profit volunteer organization that makes and donates beautifully crafted handmade quilts to cancer patients.

    Every year, Victoria’s Quilts Canada holds a quilt-a-thon with the goal of making one quilt per participant. The quilts help to brighten cancer patients’ days while also providing warmth.
