Residents receive Queen’s medal

Dedication to community by Nanaimo and area residents continues to be recognized through presentations of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

The medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by more than 60,000 Canadians.

Recent recipients include Regional District of Nanaimo Chairperson Joe Stanhope, former Nanaimo school district trustee Nelson Allen, St. John Ambulance, Haven House, Vancouver Island University and the Vancouver Island Military Museum supporter Sid Sharman and culture and heritage supporter Pamela Mar.
