On March 6, the Kenmore Heritage Society honored City Councilmember Debra Srebnik with the McMaster Heritage Award to recognize her volunteerism.

The society has awarded someone each year since 2002. Srebnik was honored at a special event held at Kenmore Community Club.

According to a press release, Srebnik 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 St. 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 the release states. According to the release, Srebnik has also served as Kenmore Elementary PTSA’s co-president and advocating for more nutritious school meals, a later high school start time and universal screening for elementary advance placement.

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.
