An evening to forever be remembered.
Congratulations to BCO founder Pamela Morgan for receiving the Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Medal on January 26th, in Okotoks, Alberta.
Queen Elizabeth II approved the creation of this commemorative medal in honour of the 70th anniversary of Her late Majesty’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. This medal will be awarded to 7,000 residents of Alberta who have made a significant contribution to Canada, Alberta, their communities, or fellow citizens.
The nomination for the medal came forward from Community Futures Highwood, with the following message:
“(Pamela) has demonstrated exceptional qualities and outstanding service to our Province in the fields of volunteerism and public service, by serving on countless boards and organizations, the creation of and work through the charity ‘Baby Its Cold Outside’, and by supporting the Okotoks business community."
A message from Pamela in gratitude for this recognition:
"Thank you to Ursula Sherwood and her amazing team at Community Futures Highwood, Brenda Anne, to Councilor Oliver Hallmark Okotoks Town Council and Foothills County Councilor Don Waldorf and to RJ Sigurdson MLA for presenting this medal to me. It was an absolute honour to share evening with Judy Evans, Verna Staples and Orvella Small as well”.
We are a charitable organization based in Alberta, Canada. We are devoted to helping the homeless through various fundraising events, clothing and essentials drives, and our eventual goal is transitional housing.
