A great big thank-you to all who came out Saturday November 5th to honour Shaun Johnston at our 23rd Annual David Billington Award Luncheon!

Approximately 200 people were at this year’s event, and many stories and many laughs were shared.  In the words of former Billington Award recipient Fil Fraser: “It was like the room was one big hug.”

Other comments we’ve received:

-“Congratulations to Bill and the team for producing a ‘moving’, entertaining, well organized and successful celebration of excellence in Alberta!”

-“Really enjoyed seeing Fred Keating hosting again!”

-“Your organization did a great job of venue, meals, speeches and overall organization. Great job!”

-“A wonderful event guys. Congratulations to both of you and your team for putting on one of the best Billingtons I have attended.”

-” It was a great afternoon.  Well planned and well executed.  I was proud and happy to be a part of it.  Nice to see Shaun get the award and also so many former winners in attendance.  It was a great day.  Our industry needs a big “hug in” once in a while.  Build a little community spirit!”
