Gov. Gen. David Johnston was presented with a Community Hero award yesterday while visiting the Federation of Calgary Communities.

“We’ll be giving his excellency the award for his contribution to building a strong and caring community,” said executive director Leslie Evans.

The award is given out every month to volunteers who are nominated by their community associations.

Johnston met with the federation to discuss ways of engaging Calgarians in community life.

The federation was one of many stops made by Johnston yesterday during his stop in Calgary.
