Proposed Motion
That Mr. Dick Lutz and Ms. Sandra Clarke be recognized with Certificates of Recognition for their contributions to the community through their years of service on the Spruce Grove Specialized Transit Service Board.
Background/Analysis
Dick Lutz has served on the Spruce Grove Specialized Transit Service Board since May of 2005. Dick brought a wealth of experience to the board having worked in the transportation industry, and was involved with STS when the organization hosted various fundraising events to purchase vehicles that provided transportation to those who had medical appointments in the area.
 
Dick was elected Vice-President of the STS Board in 2012 and President in 2017. He has been a strong community advocate for seniors and persons with disabilities, building strong relationships within the community with STS clients, service providers, and funders. He has volunteered countless hours with several non-profit organizations in the community such as NeighbourLink, Parkland Food Bank, Golden Age Club and Meals on Wheels. In 2017 Dick received a provincial award acknowledging the many hours he has given to his community as a volunteer.
 

Sandra Clarke has served on the Spruce Grove Specialized Transit board since February 2016. With over 37 years’ experience working with seniors, she understands their transportation needs and challenges. Sandra brought a unique perspective to the board as a former driver of handibus for seniors, and has also used STS services to transport seniors living in care facilities.   
 
Sandra was elected Vice-President of the STS Board in 2017. She has worked with the board, community and seniors’ facilities to ensure accessible transportation is available for everyone, and continues to advocate for positive service delivery.
