Powell River Good Citizen
The Powell River Good Citizen Committee was formed in 1944 by the Powell River News and the Knights of Pythias. It continued to be sponsored by the Powell River News in conjunction with the International Order of the Oddfellows.
In 1973 the Committee was sponsored by the Westview Rotary Club and the Powell River News with assistance by the Municipality of Powell River and MacMillian Bloedel Ltd.
This changed in 1992 with the Good Citizen committee being sponsored by the Powell River News and the Powell River Chamber of Commerce. The Good Citizen award became dormant in 1997.
