Congratulations, Linda! She is shown here accepting her certificates from Carman Kerr, MLA for Annapolis and Alan Parish, Warden of the Municipality of the County of Annapolis

Linda Baltzer has been a community-minded volunteer since her high school days. She participated in baseball, both as an enthusiastic player and an organizer of team schedules and tournaments. Girl Guides has always been close to her heart and over the years she has been a group leader and has acted as Regional Coordinator at both the local and provincial levels. Linda is well known in the Middleton & District Lions Club for her dedication to Lions’ motto, We Serve. She has held the position of President for three terms, has acted as Lions Zone Chairperson for Annapolis and Digby Counties for three years, and has recently been installed for her fourth term as Club President. She is also currently serving a four-year term on The Lions Foundation of Canada. At the Provincial level, she is Chair and Funding Coordinator for Guide Dogs and, through the Lions District, she is instrumental in raising tens of thousands of dollars in support of The Dog Training School in Oakville, Ontario. She also serves her community as Middleton Lions Club representative on Soldiers Memorial Hospital Foundation Society, recently being re-appointed to serve a second two-year term. (And we are pleased and proud to have her!) Linda is a constant supporter of worthy causes, raising funds through raffles, yard sales, flea markets, and auctions. When there is a need she is always there to help. She never waits to be asked but rather, says “What can I do or how can I help”?
