Council Update – December 10, 2019

Council last night unanimously approved adding “Kimberley Kerr” to the Town’s Bank of Approved Street Names.

“The late Kimberley Kerr is best known as the tireless and consummate volunteer, whose selfless commitment to her community and beyond for decades, was very exemplary.

Kimberley spent countless hours volunteering with Brownies, Guides, Highview Public School, the Town of Aurora, the Run for Southlake Hospital and the Annual RibFest, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Aurora.

She was the President of the Optimist Club of Aurora, which supports youth initiatives within Aurora and beyond. Her creative ideas helped the Club to move forward at a time when it needed energizing.

Kimberley was on the Board of the Aurora Chamber of Commerce and apart from being the Secretary of the Board of Directors, she introduced the first Street Dance to kick off the Aurora Street Festival, now in its 25th year.

Before she lost her battle to ALS, Kimberley was a passionate member of the Queen’s York Rangers Regimental Council.

Kimberley was a very dedicated individual who didn’t suffer fools gladly. She is deeply missed by all who knew and worked with her, and is most deserving of any recognition to honour her commitment to the Town she so loved.”
