A formal ceremony is being planned to honour a well-loved teacher and community volunteer in Blind River.
The Bea Jensen Pavilion on Sellers Beach will be formally dedicated to its namesake later this month.
According to the release, there will be a barbecue, entertainment provided by the local group Women In song and a formal dedication ceremony.
Jensen spent many years as a teacher at St. Joseph’s and was a volunteer with several organizations including the North Shore Health Network, Rotary, Golden Birches Terrace Council, to name just a few, and organizing the Blind River Senior Games.
Jensen passed away in June of 2020 and as a memorial to her, the Rotary and its partners came together to build the pavilion to honour her contributions to the community.
The dedication is set for Thursday, June 23 starting at 5:30 pm.
