ABmunis hosts QE II medal award ceremonies
About 250 outstanding Albertans received Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee medals at special invitation-only events hosted by Alberta Municipalities.
The medal awards ceremonies, held at Edmonton’s Westin Downtown on November 27 and Calgary’s Hyatt Regency on December 4, were the largest events of their kind in Alberta.
Citizen community builders, sitting mayors and past ABmunis presidents and lifetime members from all corners of Alberta received medals in recognition of their significant contributions to Canada, Alberta, and the communities in which they live and serve.
“These medal ceremonies celebrated the remarkable contributions of so many community leaders and change-makers from across Alberta,” said President Cathy Heron. “These inspirational Albertans have shown us how we can accomplish great things when we support one another and work together to overcome our common challenges.”
The Government of Alberta struck 7,000 Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee medals to commemorate Her Majesty’s unsurpassed 70-year reign. The medals are being distributed to worthy recipients on behalf of the provincial government by numerous partner organizations, including Alberta Municipalities.
Those recipients who were unable to attend these ceremonies will receive their medals via alternate delivery arrangements.
In all, ABmunis distributed 460 commemorative medals. Click here to see the complete list of recipients.
