Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal

Last night I was presented a Queen's Diamond Jubilee medal for service to my community.  After the presentation and the reception, Dad and Mom took me out for a bite to eat and took this photo.  Thanks to our MLA, Cam Broten for nominating me for the honor, it means a lot!

Here is the press release from the Lt. Governor's Office.

Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield and Central Services Minister Nancy Heppner will present 57 Saskatchewan residents with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal at two ceremonies in Saskatoon today.


“The Queen has chosen the theme of service for this milestone year, and so it is most appropriate that Canada created a Diamond Jubilee Medal, which celebrates both Her Majesty’s lifetime of service and the outstanding contributions of deserving citizens,” Solomon Schofield said. “On behalf of our sovereign, I thank each medal recipient for their commitment to the greater good.”


The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee began in February 2012, in celebration of the 60 year reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The Royal Canadian Mint created 60,000 medals, which will be awarded to outstanding Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life, across the country.


Further medals will be presented in Regina later this month.


“Each recipient of this medal has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the communities they call home and to the people of Saskatchewan. They have made our province a better place and for that we thank them,” Heppner said.
