The Tbaytel 'Good Neighbourhood' Award has gone to the Patricia Pelican Scuba Club in Sioux Lookout.

Chuck Abela was in Thunder Bay to pick up the award and a $500 prize.

The recognition was for the Club's Annual Eco Dive.

Tbaytel Brand Communication Coordinator Laura Foulds says it's a unique program and says the lake clean-up brings together residents and community groups for the well-being of everyone.

Foulds notes last year 12-divers and roughly 15-volunteers helped to retrieve garbage in the lake on Town Beach.

The Sioux Lookout Rotary Club was involved in the initiative.

Abela says last year's dive was another success and he's thanking Tbaytel for the recognition.

Abela notes this years Eco Dive may be moved to Hudson in July because of work being down at Town Beach.
