Joan McSweeney chosen as the 2021 Ontario Senior of the Year for the Municipality of Leamington

Leamington Council is delighted to present Joan McSweeney with the Ontario Senior of the Year Award in recognition of her love of, and investment in the Leamington community. 

Joan McSweeney has been active in the Leamington community for many years serving on boards and committees, and has had a great impact on many local charitable organizations. As a past Board member for the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County, Joan was instrumental in leading the team effort to deliver a satellite hospice to the Leamington area. 

"Joan has worked hard for many years to contribute to the prosperity of the Leamington community," said Mayor Hilda MacDonald. "On behalf of Council and the residents of Leamington, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Joan for her outstanding contributions and congratulate her on this well-deserved achievement."

The Ontario Senior of the Year Award is an annual award that is presented by local municipalities, through the Ontario Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility, to an outstanding senior who, after age 65, enriches the social, cultural or civic life of the community.
