We are today honouring Wilma Wickham and her late husband Dr. Thomas Wickham for their thousands of hours of volunteerism, their leadership of many community organizations and their generous financial contributions. Tom and Wilma supported the Ladysmith and District Historical Society and Tom was instrumental in establishing the Ladysmith Community Archives. For over forty years, Wilma has been actively involved with the Ladysmith Hospital Auxilary and led the planning for its 100th anniversary celebration in 2009. Together they donated land for a community park and they gave their waterfront property to the School Board to endow a scholarship for a Grade 12 student. In all of their actions and generosity, Wilma and Thomas Wickham have created lasting and invaluable legacies for their community of Ladysmith.
