McTaggart was recognized by Heartfulness Meditation and was awarded a certificate and an original painting from a local artist, said Judith Polston, a trainer with the organization who nominated McTaggart.

“Janice’s entire life has been about community service and giving back,” she said. “She has worked with tireless energy and her good sense of humor and laughter has bettered many people’s lives.”

“Her work peers as well as the average person in [the] Langley community would agree that she is well deserving of this award,” said Polston.
