A poster for Patti

Patti McGregor, a member of the Delta arts scene, gets two community awards in one week.

Patti McGregor prepares to hug Delta Arts Council treasurer Evelyn Wedley last Friday when McGregor, to her surprise, received a poster of appreciation at the North Delta Open Mic at the Firehall Centre for the Arts.

This week, to her surprise again, McGregor, a long-time member to the Delta arts scene, received a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her contributions to the community by Guy Gentner, MLA for Delta North.
