As someone who uses South Shore Regional Hospital’s services, Dwight began
donating a portion of his hard-earned bottle refund money to Health Services
Foundation of the South Shore. HSF later nominated Dwight for the award.

While photographing Dwight for HSF, a well-loved pair of rubber boots
standing in the kitchen’s boot tray immediately caught my eye, and my heart.

Congratulations Dwight! Our July 22nd 2016 Maritimer of the Week! (and much more)

PEACE IS NOT SOMETHING YOU WISH FOR;
IT’S SOMETHING YOU MAKE,
SOMETHING YOU DO.
IT’S SOMETHING YOU ARE,
SOMETHING YOU GIVE AWAY.
