Joan Ballenger (2009)

In 2009, the Town of Sidney honoured one of Sidney's great ladies, Joan E. Ballenger, by dedicating a plaque in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the community.  The plaque was installed in Beacon Park and became the first of many to come.  In 2011, Sidney Council formalized the process of recognizing an individual each year whose volunteer efforts have a profound impact on the community.
