The contributions of the late Maureen Young, past Electoral Area C Director, were honoured on June 15 with a commemorative plaque at Extension Miners Community Park. Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) representatives were joined for the plaque unveiling by the Young family, park volunteers and community members. Maureen was an RDN Director for 16 years until her passing in November 2021 and was a tireless advocate for many projects and programs that helped improve life in the region including parks, drinking water and watershed protection and rural firefighting services. She served on several RDN committees including parks and trails, community grants, transit, agriculture, and fire services, and represented the RDN on external committees with the City of Nanaimo and Mt. Arrowsmith Biosphere Region, to name a few.
