Members of arts community honoured

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee began in February 2012 in celebration of her 60-year reign. The Royal Canadian Mint created 60,000 medals that have been awarded to outstanding Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life across the country. This included a number of prominent members of the Saskatchewan arts community.

"The Queen has chosen the theme of service for this milestone year and so it is most appropriate that Canada created a Diamond Jubilee Medal which celebrates both Her Majesty's lifetime of service and the outstanding contributions of deserving citizens," Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield said. "On behalf of our sovereign, I thank each medal recipient for their commitment to the greater good."

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee officially concluded on February 6, 2013.
