Changing Lives Award
We presented Leo Sanfacon with the “Changing Lives” Award at our 25th anniversary celebration on April 12th in recognition of the positive impact that he has made on the lives of thousands of children and families in the Lakes Region.
The “Changing Lives” award recognizes someone whose contributions to the Lakes Region community reflect the mission and values of our organization. We created the award last year to honor the tireless efforts of our founding executive director, Linda Harvey, to ensure that everyone in our community has the opportunity to be successful.
Linda was on hand to present the award to Leo. She read off a long list of the organizations that he has been involved with over more than 20 years, including Lakes Region Community Developers, the Youth Services Bureau and Teen Court program; the Belknap Juvenile Justice Initiative and Restorative Justice program where he served as a jurist, mentor and advisory leader; CASA; the Belknap County Teen Center which ultimately became the Boys & Girls Club; the Gilford Youth Center; the Gilford Library; St. Vincent De Paul’s financial counseling program; and Leadership Lakes Region.
When Linda presented Leo with the award, she recounted how his passion for kids and families was heightened during his participation in the first class of Leadership Lakes Region in 1998, of which they were both graduates. Linda said, “Leo has had an amazing impact by quietly and remarkably stepping up to make sure that our community provides opportunities for every family to thrive.”
Thank you, Leo, for all you have done for this community. We are forever grateful.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on April 12th to celebrate 25 years of building healthy homes in the Lakes Region!
