Six Locals Receive Diamond Jubilee Medals

On September 6, MP Gordon O’Conner awarded 33 Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals to people in his riding. Six went to residents of Mississippi Mills.

Wayne Rostad, Tim Ray, Jeff Mills, Judith McGrath, Jim Lowry and Brian Tackaberry were honored for their volunteer work and leadership in civic and charity organizations.

At the event held in the Centre Block at Parliament Hill, an acquaintance of mine from Carleton Place remarked that “The Mississippi Mills mafia is out in force.”
