Jack Dennett and Lori Lumsden were recognized for their time on Redwater council.
Dennett and Lumsden were both voted out in the last election.
Lumsden had served two terms on council and was a frequent volunteer for many community and council initiatives.
She received a bouquet of flowers and several photos of her during her time on council.
Dennett served for 46 years on council.
"That dedication is virtually unheard of in the province," said mayor Mel Smith. "We gave him a beautiful little memento that the Town of Redwater has given to very few, select people."
He was given a brass pump-jack that moves, a reminder of the town's position in the oilfield.
The solemn mood highlighted the magnitude of the impact the two former councillors had on the town.
"Jack was very touched and so was Lori, they both had tears in their eyes and I did, along with other council members too," added Smith "They were a part of our lives for between seven and 46 years, depending on your length of office."
Dennett was credited as being a big part of cleaning and beautifying the town up in his over four decades on council. He was also a champion of diverting the water effluent being diverted to the golf course to water the course, eliminating the need for potable water and saving the course thousands of dollars per year.
