Since 1980, the Chamber of Commerce has offered the HD Stafford Good Citizen of the Year Award to a deserving resident of the Langley area to thank them and recognize their outstanding contribution to the community. This award honours an individual who contributes towards bringing together business and citizens to make a difference in the community. The award is dedicated to the memory of the late Harold Stafford who epitomized what a good citizen should be. Mr. Stafford dedicated an enormous amount of time and effort, and worked relentlessly on new initiatives to make Langley a better place to live and conduct business. Whatever project or cause Harold Stafford became involved in he attacked it with admirable tenacity and would not let it go until he had seen the project through to a successful and meaningful completion.
