Queen’s Diamond Jubilee awards presentation in Princeton

Three residents were presented with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award at the regular meeting of Council on Monday, Jan. 21.

MLA for Fraser-Nicola, Mr. Harry Lali traveled to Princeton on Monday night to join Mayor Frank Armitage in presenting the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award to three local recipients.

To be eligible for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award recipients must have made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or community within Canada, or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada.

Locals Joyce Fraser, Edith M. Currie and Ken Carlson easily fit in to the award criteria.

These three are honored for “their service and commitment to their community over an extended period of time,” said Mayor Armitage, “thank you, on behalf of all our citizens.”

Fraser and Currie were nominated for the award by the Council of the Town of Princeton and presented their awards by Mayor Armitage.

MLA Harry Lali nominated Ken Carlson for the award. “It was pretty tough to choose, Fraser -Nicola is large—a lot of deserving people,” said Lali. “I was allowed four in my constituency and I am pleased to present one of them to Ken Carlson,” he said.

Certificates and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals were presented to each of the recipients.
