Regina residents receive Queen’s Platinum Jubilee medals

164 Regina residents were honoured at City Hall with Platinum Jubilee medals presented by Lt. Governor Russ Mirasty.

REGINA - It was a crowded Henry Baker Hall at City Hall in Regina for the awarding of Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medals.

There was not just one ceremony, but two on the afternoon of Jan. 30 in the council chamber to acknowledge all of the 164 Regina residents who were being recognized for their contributions and service to the community.

The recipients honoured came from varied backgrounds including agriculture, the arts, health services, protective services, armed forces, the legal field, education and other areas.

They were presented their medals by Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty along with Deputy Mayor Andrew Stevens representing the City of Regina.

The Regina recipients are among 7,000 receiving Platinum Jubilee medals throughout the province. 

Medal presentations began with the presentation of the first 70 medals at Government House last August and have continued throughout the province over the last several months. The recipients for this round in Regina were selected through a nomination process that closed last Nov. 30.

There have been Jubilee medals presented in the past but this Platinum medal was particularly different, as Mirasty noted.

"This is the first time in Canadian history that the royal occasion has been commemorated with provincial medals," Mirasty said, noting the previous Jubilee medals were issued nationally. "This medal program is an excellent way to commemorate Her Majesty's devotion to service… while celebrating the dedicated service of people like you here today. It is only the second Saskatchewan commemorative medal, the first being issued during our Centennial in 2005."

"These medals are a valuable way to acknowledge those who work to enrich our communities, and whose achievements truly inspire us all. I thank each honoree for generously giving up your time and talent, thank you for your service to our community and by extension to our province."
