Queen’s Medal winner appreciates Nelson community

Please allow me to say thanks to the people of Nelson for choosing me to be the recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal.

Please allow me to say thanks to the people of Nelson for choosing me to be the recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal. It is indeed a great honour, made more so because of the support of my fellow Nelsonites!  Greg, of the Hume Hotel, did us proud with a fabulous Jubilee (very royal) tea. It was wonderful to see so many friends there, and also to meet the other amazing and very deserving recipients. MLA Michelle Mungall and her staff organized everything to perfection. It was a great day for me, almost as great a day as when we moved to Nelson in November 1968 — 44 years ago!
