Community Service Awards

The Aldergrove Agricultural Association coordinates several Aldergrove community service awards which are presented presented during the Opening or Closing Ceremonies of Aldergrove Fair Days.

Hilda Reddick Community Service Award

The Hilda Reddick Community Service Award recognizes an individual over the age of 18 who lives or works in Aldergrove1 for their outstanding service to our community without regard for their own personal gain.

The late Hilda Reddick lived with us in Aldergrove for only a few years, where she ran a small shoe store in the Aldergrove Mall. Her fierce dedication to so many organizations epitomized community spirit and service.

The award is presented during the Opening or Closing Ceremonies of the annual Aldergrove Fair.
