Petruk, Bea

Bea Petruk - Good Citizen Award 2013Many dancers have benefited from the work of the Thunder Bay Society of Ballet and Dance.  Countless scholarships, travel grants, workshop opportunities and performance opportunities have been developed through the Society. Bea Petruk was a major reason these opportunities exist in Thunder Bay today. As Vice-President and President of the Ballet Society, Bea was responsible for organizing meetings, fundraisers such as bingos, workshops, Christmas and Fantasy Shows, Bea was the representative between the Ballet Society, Festival Director and the Dance Community.

As Dance Liaison for the Lakehead Music Festival, Bea worked hard representing all parties.  Any issues that arose, Bea, as well as the Festival Director, worked to resolve the situation as fairly as possible. Throughout the entire Music Festival, Bea dedicated countless hours to its success. As President of the Dawson Court Ladies Auxiliary, Bea is responsible for running their Tuck Shop, organizing fundraisers and organizing special events for the seniors. Bea’s volunteer work is greatly appreciated.
