Family and friends filled the council chambers during the regular council meeting held on January 21, to watch Judy Lindley receive the Queens Diamond Jubilee medal. Nominated by Councillor Joanne Wilton, Judy was recognized for her longstanding dedication to the community through the Sparwood New to You. "For the past 20 years Judy has overseen the staff and ensured that the services provided to the needy are confidential. She assists those who are in need by making sure they have what they need, all while doing this selflessly and quietly. She goes above and beyond by checking the donation drop boxes at all times, ensuring there are no thefts and all money made by New to You goes back into the community. Judy is very much deserving of this award," said Mayor Lois Halko, on behalf of Wilton who was unable to attend.

Lindley is the fifth recipient of the Queens Diamond Jubilee medal in Sparwood.
