Daniel Lapp to receive The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Award #yyj
Vancouver Island musical icon Daniel Lapp is receiving The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Award for Community Service this Monday, Dec. 17 at 5:00pm at the Victoria Parliament Buildings.
The new commemorative medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
During the year of celebrations, 60 000 deserving Canadians will be recognized.
This coming Saturday Dec.22, Lapp's annual "Home for Christmas" event at St.Andrew's Presbyterian Church will benefit the Dandelion Society, who supply blankets, gloves, toques, sleeping bags, and socks to community members living on the Victoria streets.
