MP Hoback Presents Outstanding Local Citizens with Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals
Randy Hoback, Member of Parliament for the federal riding of Prince Albert hosted a ceremony and celebration this evening at the Maurice Taylor Performing Arts Theatre in Tisdale, SK to present 11 individuals with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
The Diamond Jubilee year is a rare opportunity for Canadians to celebrate a historic and significant occasion; the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. It is also a time to celebrate how Canada has evolved and prospered as a nation over the past 60 years of Her Majesty’s reign.
The new commemorative Diamond Jubilee medal was created as a tangible way for Canada to honour those individuals who selflessly give back and contribute to the betterment of their communities; the true heroes of our communities whose perseverance, dedication, kindness and compassion has made our province and our country the best place in the world.
“Today is a wonderful occasion to celebrate those who have dedicated themselves to service for their fellow citizens, their community and their country,” said MP Randy Hoback. “Some of these individuals are widely recognized for their tremendous contributions, while others represent the unsung heroes of our community. To all, this medal signifies our tremendous gratitude for everything that they do.”
Those recognized for their outstanding contributions included:
Darlene Campbell (Mefort, SK), Cao Chun Hua, (Carrot River, SK), James Chute (Nipawin, SK), Dale Debienne (Carrot River, SK), Blake Emmons (Nipawin, SK), Alice Fyfe (Nipawin, SK) Rod Gantefoer (Melfort, SK), Cheryl Gudmundson (Tisdale, SK), Richard Hildebrand (Tisdale, SK), Major Michael Hoeft (Melfort, SK) and Christopher Hudyma (Nipawin, SK)
