Edgar Dunning

Delta, British Columbia

At one hundred years of age, Edgar Dunning stands before us as the cherished voice of the Delta community. Long associated with the Delta Optimist newspaper and still contributing a weekly column called ‘Rambling,’ Edgar’s words have influenced the development of Delta. His nominator says ‘Edgar’s fingerprints are all over what’s good about the municipality.’ From the Delta Museum and Archives, the Delta Concert Band, the Kinsmen Club, the Ladner Business Association, to the Delta Heritage Advisory Commission and the Burns Bog Conservation Society, almost every community organization and event has benefitted from Edgar’s wise counsel over the many years he has been an active and dedicated citizen.
