Dick and Sue Basford were presented with the award in honor of their shared lifetime of community service and philanthropy. Longtime members of the hospital’s Order of the Good Samaritan, the Basfords are also active members of the FMH Auxiliary, contributing a combined total of well over 7,000 hours of direct patient and administrative service.

As one of their nominators put it, ‘they are the epitome of what it means to be community servants."
