It’s Friday and that means it’s time for our #FriendOfTheFoundationFriday! We are showcasing one of the many businesses, organizations and individuals who work with the Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation and the amazing work that they do in our community and with the Foundation.
This week we are featuring Sandra Peltier, a publisher at Best Version Media. Sandra is a member of our Food for Thought committee and has been a great asset in promoting the Foundation in the community. We were able to talk to her about her work with CNDCF and the community.
Tell us about you!
With 25+ years as a media specialist, I am thrilled to be working with our team at Best Version Media, publishing neighbourhood magazines here in Cambridge. Bringing people together to build a stronger community not only through our publications but most importantly giving back to our community.
I very much enjoy being an active Rotarian, supporting the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra and of course, working with the Cambridge North Dumfries Community Foundation along with a few committees here and there.
Getting a round of golf in and constantly meeting new people in our community through the variety of arts & cultural events Cambridge has to offer. I would be remiss not to mention, shopping! Supporting our local business owners is a top priority, especially when out of town family and friends visit. My husband and I have travelled extensively abroad and are looking forward to visiting more of Canada.
Tell us how you are involved with the Cambridge and North Dumfries Community Foundation?
I have been a Food for Thought committee member for 5 years now, however, I continually support the CNDCF initiatives by creating awareness at every opportunity I have. Encouraging the support of individuals and businesses to join in and celebrate this wonderful “gift” we have in our community.
What brought you to the Cambridge and North Dumfries Community Foundation?
As a publisher, I wanted to reach people through the pages of our magazines by educating and creating awareness of how we can all get involved and that this foundation truly exists. It surprises me that so many are not aware of how lucky we are and the importance of supporting such an amazing resource CNCF is to our community.
What is your favorite thing about the Cambridge and/or North Dumfries Community?
CNDCF supports our community through various channels to ensure our community thrives not only today but tomorrow.
What are your hopes for the future of our community?
Community, neighbourhoods are the place you walk your dog, the place where you raise your family, and the place you spend your golden years. My hope is that more of us support positive change and get involved by volunteering to causes that matter – building a stronger community in which we live. We can all make a difference for positive change through involvement, not only with people in need and/or challenges but supporting local businesses, respecting our environment and saying a friendly hello as you walk down the street.
We are grateful for Sandra’s commitment to the Foundation and to the community at large!
