2022 Citizen of the Year

The Rotary Club of Acton is pleased to announce that David McLean has been selected as Acton's Citizen of the Year for 2022. The selection committee, consisting of 3 former citizens of the year, carefully reviewed several worthy candidate submissions, all of whom would have been excellent choices to receive the honour.
David is currently the President of Hillsview Acton Living (Seniors) Centre and is also the recipient of the 2022 Halton Volunteer Impact Award! David is a regular blood bank donor and holds several certificates for providing donations over many years. David is a long time “Food for Life’ volunteer, and also an important figure at Branch 197 of the Royal Canadian Legion. A nominator also stated ‘David always goes above and beyond unselfishly helping neighbours (snow blowing driveways, cutting lawns), promoting local businesses and the community and Halton Hills. The list of David’s efforts goes on and on, we will learn more about David at an upcoming event in his honour!
