Pugwash’s Norene Smiley, right, travelled to Ottawa recently to attend a ceremony where she was presented the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers by Governor General Julie Payette. Smiley has been volunteering in the village since moving to the area in 2007 in a number of capacities, including Pugwash Communities in Bloom. Sgt Johanie Maheu, Rideau Hall © OSGG, 2019
