We are proudly announcing that three members of our club, Barb Collishaw, Cathy Bellinger and Anne Gemmell have each received official notice from the Governor General of Canada Julie Payette, that they are to be future recipients of the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers, Canada’s highest award for volunteering. The merit is based mainly on their work done with our PHC since its inception nearly 5 years ago. They are also the first parrotheads to be recognized for their efforts by the Governor General in this capacity. This is not a group award, but an individual one.
Cathy, Barb and Anne have been the mainstays of our group from our first year and we are very proud of the efforts they have put in, whether it’s giving out coffee or selling ties to help the Alzheimer’s Society, fundraising for Big Brothers/Big Sisters or collecting footwear for the shoe bank. They have been out there helping the community, having a great time whatever they get called upon to do and in true parrothead style.
The Governor General of Canada is appointed by Queen Elizabeth and is the highest government official in Canada. According to her website, this honour is for citizens who have made significant, sustained and unpaid contributions to their community in Canada or abroad and have demonstrated an exemplary commitment through their dedicated volunteerism. Non-Canadians are also eligible if their contributions have brought benefit or honour to Canadians or to Canada.
The actual medal will be presented at a later date, usually at the Governor General’s residence in Ottawa
Surpassed 5,000 pairs of footwear donated to the Shoe Bank of Canada….
