Dick Miller was surprised and delighted when he was awarded the LifeTime Achievement Award at the Lennox Community Theater's Annual General Meeting. Dick has been involved with the Selby theatre for 15 years and has taken on many different roles although his favourites are comedies. Hopefully he will find his voice again when he assumes the role as emcee at the Verona Cattail Festival. Kudos Dick on your Lifetime Achievement Award!
