Ceremony fit for a queen

Langley MP Mark Warawa will host a ceremony at the Rose Gellert Hall of the Langley Community Music School to present Diamond Jubilee Medals to 30 Langley residents who have made outstanding contributions to their communities and country.

“It is a great pleasure to pay tribute to Langley residents who have gone above and beyond to serve their communities,” Warawa said.

“These medals, which commemorate the extraordinary service of Her Majesty The Queen to Canada, are a fitting tribute to those who have given so much of themselves to our community.”

The ceremony will be held on Saturday, Nov. 24, at which time the recipients’ names will be made public.

Due to space restrictions, the event is limited to invitation only.

In addition to being a symbol of their remarkable achievements, the Diamond Jubilee Medal is also a celebration of The Queen’s own service and devotion to the country.

The Diamond Jubilee Medal was created in honour of the 60th anniversary of the Queen accession to the Throne.

The medal recognizes Canadians from all walks of life who have made significant contributions to Canada or whose achievements abroad have brought credit to Canada.

A total of 60,000 Diamond Jubilee Medals will be given to Canadians throughout the year.
