Mayor Rob Burton will present Queen’s Diamond Jubliee Medals to the founders of Oakvillegreen: Councillor Allan Elgar, Linda Elgar, Iris McGee and Renee Sandelowsky. The medals are in recognition of Oakvillegreen’s inspirational role in the creation of Oakville’s Natural Heritage System, Ontario’s first municipal heritage system. The establishment of a natural heritage system in North Oakville as a “first priority” of planning is a precedent-setting achievement.
“The Oakville Natural Heritage System is a 2300 acre legacy of green space,” Mayor Rob Burton said. “The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medals are a way of publicly recognizing their contribution to preserving Oakville’s green space and working with us.”
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne, and act as a way to call attention to the significant contributions and achievements of Canadians in all walks of life.
The medal ceremony is scheduled for 3 p.m. on February 18 at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex. The media are encouraged to attend and can RSVP via the contact information below.
