Sherry Thorburn-Irvine


l was born in Sandy Point and I have been involved in volunteerism throughout my life. As a young teen, a Sunday school teacher; in early adulthood, executive positions in Kinettes, a women’s service organization; an environmental group director for the Neyenkut Society. I am a 3rd term Shelburne Heritage Society Museum board member, a director with the West Green Harbour Recreation Association, (WGHRA), a volunteer with the Shelburne Loyalist Food Bank and currently, I am also volunteering with the Shelburne Yacht Club, as they innovate.

I am a passionate family historian of 40 years, and by extension, fascinated by our local history. I am now in my 5th year of curling with the Shelburne Curling Centre. I aspire to learn to sail. I love the outdoors, but most of alI, I am interested in and I care about people. I possess a strong work ethic, and I look forward to partnering and working with fellow Councillors and citizens of Shelburne County to grow and strengthen our communities.
