We're honoured to announce that our very own Vern Anderson has been recognized with the Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers! 

​The Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers recognizes exceptional volunteer achievements from across the country and abroad, celebrating a wide range of voluntary contributions. 

The recognition is part of the Canadian Honours System and is an official honour created by the Crown. 

Vern's award is presented for the fun and cheer he has brought to South Indian Lake, including fundraising for and organizing the annual Christmas season sliding party, and his work as a member of the Indigenous Advisory Council where he's assisted Booth University in becoming culturally competent with Indigenous culture and Truth and Reconciliation goals. 

Vern was previously presented with the Division's 2019 Frontier Achievement Award and we are proud to see him recognized again with such honours.
