Blackville resident and musician Amy Jardine, who is known for his countless volunteer hours playing at fundraisers, recently received the Diamond Jubilee Medal. The special award medal was presented to Mr. Jardine by New Brunswick Premier David Alward at Nine Pine Lounge in Blackville on Thursday, June 14.
Amy is one of 60,000 deserving Canadians who have been or will be recognized during celebrations across the country this year.
The 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.
