Local business owners given Star Award by KYC


The Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC) presented two North Grenville business owners with Star Awards last week for their support of the organization. On Thursday, Piero Presutti of the Oxford Thrift Shoppe, and local lawyer Connie Lamble, were honoured with the award for their continuous donations to KYC.

Piero and his wife Debbie have been donating at least 20 per cent of Oxford Thrift Shoppe’s gross sales every year to KYC, usually surpassing that goal. “Their generous support makes a difference in running programs and providing a safe space for youth to enjoy their friends and feel a part of our community,” said a press release from KYC. Piero and Debbie’s latest donation is reported in this issue of the Times.

Local lawyer, Connie Lamble, has also been a consistent supporter of KYC. “Generous donations, like Connie’s, allow quality, consistent programs and a safe engaging environment for youth,” said the press release about Connie’s award.

Both awards will be displayed in KYC’s award galaxy in their entryway.
