Vic Powell named Dunnville’s Citizen of the Year

By Jen Nevans,

For decades, Dunnville resident Vic Powell has been quietly supporting the town’s many groups and projects.

And while he’d rather continue to do it without getting any recognition, Powell has no choice but to be pulled into the limelight after being named the 2015 Dunnville Citizen of the Year.

“I can’t think of a more deserving man to be recognized as our Dunnville Citizen of the Year than Vic Powell,” said Carolyn Chymko, past president of the Dunnville Chamber of Commerce. “I’m very proud and thankful he is a member of our community and also (thankful) to be able to call him my friend.”
