SASKATCHEWAN — Christine Lang, current mayor of the village of Tramping Lake, was amongst 40 recipients who received a Queen's Platinum Jubilee medal at special ceremony on Dec. 2 held in Kindersley.

Lang has a long history of giving back to the community and the province, and has been deemed most worthy of this honour by all who know her.

The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (Saskatchewan) was created to celebrate the 70th anniversary year of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne, which began on Feb. 6, 2022. The medal is a tangible way for the province of Saskatchewan to honour Queen Elizabeth for her service to Canada. A total of 7,000 medals will be awarded at ceremonies held throughout the province during the platinum jubilee year. The medal program will be the focus of the government of Saskatchewan’s jubilee year commemorations.

The medal itself is struck in copper and plated with nickel suspended from a ribbon in colors that represent Canada’s three seas with red and white representative of national colors of Canada. Recipients also receive a certificate. 

We will have more on their stories to come as we catch up with the recipients.
