This prestigious award is given to Canadians that have made a significant contribution to the community, Canada and its citizens. This award, awarded by the Kin Club of Canada has only been awarded to 65 other people. Past notable recipients include hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, singer and entertainer Céline Dion, past Governor General Michelle Jean, retired football legend Michael “Pinball” Clemons, Rick Hansen and retired General Rick Hillier, to name a few.

Trent has been involved in community work for many years, but for the past 11 years he has been a major supporter of the Marsha Morton Memorial golf tournament. The annual golf tournament in support of Cystic Fibrosis was named in honour of Marsha Morton, a Canadian who succumbed to Cystic Fibrosis in 1988 at the age of 12 and daughter of Ken & Karen Morton, members of the Kin Club of Orleans & District and close friends of Trent.

This year’s annual tournament with the help of Trent and Rhodes & Williams, raised $18,018 toward Cystic Fibrosis. We are proud to congratulate Trent Young who accepted the award at the 11th annual Marsha Morton Golf Tournament for Cystic Fibrosis.

After repeated problems with our current insurance broker I got in touch with @ottawainsurance from Rhodes & Williams Insurance Brokers who I had the pleasure of meeting on Twitter and then at a local get-together ... they actually came at a significant savings!
