André Laberge

Service Award recipient 1997

André joined the MNS in 1990 and has volunteered on a variety of committees. As the MNS Treasurer for over 3 years, André has spent countless hours in meetings, working on the MNS’ many accounts, preparing financial statements and reports.

In addition, André has also been Chairperson of the Victoria Beach Cottage Committee since 1994, and for some of those years it’s been a committee of one. He has done considerable work to repair and improve the cottage and the grounds. André has also been very active in the Mantario Outdoor Program committees, organizing programs and workshops and leading trips.

André has contributed considerably to the Society and its many programs and is very deserving of this Service Award.

President’s Award recipient 1996

The Manitoba Naturalists Society has over 25 committees and undertakes numerous projects each year. Being the MNS Treasurer entails a lot of work and responsibility, with many hours spent organizing and sorting out the financial complexities. André was the MNS Treasurer 1993-1994 and for the past year. I appreciate the dedication he has brought to this position.
