Brockville – MP Gord Brown and MPP Steve Clark today reminded residents of the riding that the nomination deadline for their Canada 150 medals is August 31.
“We have had a large number of nominations so far but we know there are more to come so we are reminding people to get their nominations and supporting letters in as soon as possible,” says Brown.
“There are so many people in Leeds-Grenville working to make our communities stronger. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to recognize these individuals by submitting a nomination before August 31,” says Clark.
They are looking for 150 of Leeds-Grenville’s finest volunteers and community builders to present them with a Canada 150 Anniversary Medal.
Nominations are open to any resident of the riding. Nomination forms are available at both Brown’s and Clark’s office and they are also available to download on their respective websites: www.gordbrownmp.ca and www.steveclarkmpp.com
When they are completed, they can be returned to either Clark’s or Brown’s office.
After the close of nominations, a panel of four judges from throughout the riding will review them and choose the 150 recipients. The medals will be presented at a special ceremony October 11, 2017 at the Brockville Arts Center.
The medals feature the Canadian Flag on one side and the full color Canada 150 Symbol on the other. There is a gold background behind each and the outer rim is silver. The lettering is white on a blue background. The medals come in a presentation box.
