Mel Gallant

Award Sponsor: JoAnn Thompson Franklin
Mel Gallant is so deserving of recognition for his many contributions to the Joyriders. He has been a true friend, volunteer and administrator for fifteen years serving on the board of directors, especially as treasurer and fund-raiser. He made important contacts for us, including with an international artist whom he persuaded to design and donate our logo and donate artwork for fund-raising. He also shared his own award-winning talent as a photographer to our benefit. His administrative skills and organizing abilities were above reproach, and his caring, compassionate and outgoing personality – imparted with a great sense of humour – have placed us very much in his debt.
