Janette Glover Geidt is a cornerstone of the community of Union Bay. Of special note is Janette’s leadership of the Union Bay Historical Society. She is the driving force behind the purchase and restoration of the Union Bay Post Office, thus saving an important heritage building in her community. Janette also spearheaded the restoration of the old Jail House which is now the Union Bay museum, thus preserving a legacy of the past for the youth of tomorrow. One of Janette’s nominators wrote the following: ‘a community is not just a collection of buildings. A community is people, people who are involved with their neighbours day to day, season to season’. Janette has helped to make Union Bay a community through her tireless efforts.
