Nelson came together to celebrate David Hogg on Friday.

Hogg accepted his 2018 Citizen of the Year honours at a banquet that included last year’s winner Kim Charlesworth. The award has been handed out annually since 1963 to residents who have made significant contributions to the Nelson community.
