White Rock RCMP honoured its community policing volunteers and auxiliary constables last month.

The 38 individuals – who gave a combined 4,900 hours to the RCMP in 2010 – were thanked by Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry and White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson, at an appreciation event May 19.

Noted for extended service were Cliff Loree and Wally Richardson (five years); Bruce Graham, Gerry Parson and Marilyn Rice (10 years); Loree and Helge Jensen (200 hours); Ivo Saarni and Steve Ward (1,000 hours); and Archie Miller (1,500 hours; presented posthumously).

Rice was also recognized for 3,000 hours of service; Richardson also received the Ron Baldwin Memorial Award, for kindness, concern for others and unwavering dedication.

Citizens and businesses thanked were Cyndie Tataryn of the Semiahmoo Liquor Store, for the business’s annual contribution of trauma bears to the Victim Assistance program; meteorologist Mark Mardryga; Terry Ross of Foto Source; and José Latchinian of José & Co Custom Jewellers.

The awards evening was sponsored by the Semiahmoo Volunteer Community Policing Society.
