“The dedication and generosity of British Columbians like these make our communities great places to live,” Horgan said.

Lamond has made many significant contributions to Richmond’s sports community, and continues to chair the Richmond Sports Council of which he was a founding member. He is also co-founder of KidSport-Richmond which ensures that finances do not prevent children the opportunity to participate in sport.

Active in the sports community for 45-plus years, Lamond has also dedicated countless volunteer hours to the BC Forester Games for disabled athletes as well as the BC Summer Games and BC Seniors Games. He is currently working on a possible Richmond bid to host the 2020 Seniors Games with city councillor Bill McNulty, another longtime Richmond sports contributor who received a B.C. Community Achievement Award in 2004, the second year the awards were presented.
