Slocan, Salmo residents receive Queen’s medals

Slocan’s Jean Patterson and Salmo’s Lawrence Bond were presented with royal honours this month from senator Nancy Greene Raine.

Two local residents, Jean Patterson from Slocan and Lawrence Bond from Salmo, received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award this month for their outstanding service to their respective communities.

The duo are among 60,000 Canadians across the country who will be recognized, chosen by senators, MPs, MLAs, as well as military and RCMP leaders.

Patterson has lived in Slocan since 1952 — the same year as Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation — and is presently on village council.
