BROCKVILLE, March 26, 2012 – Ontario Senator Bob Runciman, Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown and MPP Steve Clark are inviting local residents to submit nominations for the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal
The Diamond Jubilee Medal is designed to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years of selfless service and devotion to duty, while also honouring exceptional Canadians for their contributions.
Runciman, Brown and Clark have each been allocated a number of medals by the Governor General’s office for presentation to deserving recipients. They’ve appointed a committee of prominent citizens – Harry Pratt of Kemptville, David Beatty of Brockville, Judi Baril of Prescott, and John Nalon of Gananoque – to review the nominations and approximately 60 recipients will be honoured at an event jointly hosted by the three representatives in the fall.
Nominees must be residents of Leeds-Grenville, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, must have made a significant contribution to a province, region or community within Canada or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada, and must have been alive as of Feb. 6, 2012 (the anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the Throne). For more information, visit http://www.gg.ca/diamondjubilee.

The submission should also include the gender, age and preferred language of the nominee. In addition, nominators must provide their own name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
