Fernie citizens honoured in Jubilee celebration

Four Fernie citizens received awards for their contribution to society, in a Jubilee ceremony today.

David Wilks, Member of Parliament, Kootenay Columbia and Mayor Mary Giuliano of the City of Fernie hosted the Diamond Jubilee ceremony to present Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals to four distinguished Fernie citizens.

In keeping with the tradition of honouring Her Majesty’s milestone years of service, this medal has been created to mark the 60th Anniversary of her Majesty’s accession to the throne. The medal serves to honour the contributions and achievements made by Canadians, specifically Fernie citizens, from all sections of our society and community. Prominent Fernie residents, Mary Menduk, Fred Gietz, Heiko Socher and Frank Lento were recipients.

Following the ceremony on Wednesday afternoon, there was a cutting of a symbolic cake representing Canada, outside Fernie court house.
