Joe Iannarelli has been posthumously recognised with an Award of Merit from the BC Recreation and Parks Association.

The award “recognises achievement at the municipal…level that involves a significant, distinct contribution to the enhancement of local recreation and parks.”

Iannarelli had been recreation director for the city for 30 years when he died suddenly in December 2009.

In its citation, the BCRPA noted that though he was being recognised posthumously, “his work continues to impact the (city) through the many projects and initiatives he introduced and supported.”

Association CEO Suzanne Allard Strutt said, “Joe was a true recreation practitioner who recognised the connection between the strong and diverse recreation department and a healthy community.”

 

The award was accepted by his father Joseph and daughters Robyn and Jocelyn.
