Kenmore Heritage Society honors Debra Srebnik with McMaster Heritage Award

Volunteers make a difference in every community. In Kenmore, a special volunteer is selected annually to receive the McMaster Heritage Award in recognition of outstanding volunteerism. The award has been made each year since 2002 by the Kenmore Heritage Society.

The 2019 award honored Debra Srebnik at a special event held at Kenmore Community Club on March 6. Debra has participated in Kenmore’s development since the mid-1990s, first organizing volunteers for the city’s incorporation effort, then serving as a Planning Commissioner working on the city’s first comprehensive plan. She was a founding member of the Friends of Saint Edward State Park and the Kenmore Waterfront Activities Center, co-chaired Kenmore’s Walkways and Waterways bond measure, and worked together with others to create the Kenmore Rowing Club and Waterfront Fair.

She has also worked on behalf of children and youth in our community, serving as Kenmore Elementary PTA’s co-president, and advocating for more nutritious school meals, a later high school start time, and universal screening for elementary advance placement. She is presently serving on the Kenmore City Council. The McMaster Heritage Award is named for John McMaster, who gave Kenmore its name on January 10, 1901. McMaster was an early shingle mill operator in Kenmore
