Hariett Madigan says being named the 2011 Kiwanis Citizen of the Year is a bit overwhelming and she definitely appreciates the honour. She’s being recognized Tuesday night with a dinner and ceremony at the Clarion. Madigan is a founding member of the Community Waterfront Friends and Heritage Gardeners. She’s also chair of the Nipissing Botanical Gardens Committee, co-chair for the waterfront Pergola Campaign and in 1996 started a group called “Living Fit from the Inside-Out”. Madigan also says nothing is done in isolation. She says there are so many great people in the community, pointing out it’s the most generous community she’s ever been in. The committee says Madigan encourages community outreach through various initiatives and has also developed a fundraising forum to help support local and international charities.
