We connected with our hometown girl Tanya Kim, TV Host & Personality and Dog Advocate to let her know the city has unveiled the new display concept for the Walk of Fame which she is a recipient since 2011.
Now she is in a ‘box of fame’ due to our harsh winter weather.
Dr. Roberta Bondar came home on December 7th for the official unveiling of the restoration project.
Tanya Kim can now be found at the Queen/March Street Parkette, along with Treble Charger, Joanie & Gary McGuffin, Dr. David Walde, Lester Pyette, Tony Van Den Bosch and others.
Having grown up in the Sault, moving the awards from the sidewalk to a more weather friendly display case came as no surprise to Kim.
Tanya tells Saultonline, “When I was first honoured with a ‘star’ on Sault Ste. Marie’s Walk of Fame, I was truly grateful and humbled to be recognized by my hometown and to be included amongst such an esteemed group. Now, it feels like we are being honoured all over again with the beautiful new displays throughout the city.”
“I am proud to call the Soo my home and to have my name so beautifully displayed.”
Tanya is living in Toronto with her Bullmastiff Miss Mabel, who just turned one year old.
She is taking a much needed break at the moment but told us, “I’ve got a couple of irons in the fire, and am very much looking forward to all the possibilities!”
Knowing Tanya, she has more than a couple of irons in that fire, she is the fire.
