I am honoured to have had the opportunity to recognize 14 outstanding individuals and reward them for their commitment and selfless dedication to our community and those in need. The recipients of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in Kitchener-Conestoga come from all walks of life and have served our region in a number of unique ways, like supporting the arts and culture, developing educational programs, improving health care, providing spiritual guidance, building strong local neighbourhoods and keeping our community safe.

The contributions of these individuals, and others like them, have truly made our community into the success it is today. I want to congratulate Chattar Ahuja, Jason Ball, Garo Bostajian, Mandy Bujold, Maureen Cowan, Charles Foy, Michael Kennedy, Paul Knowles, David Kuhn, Kelly Meissner, Alvin Sararus, Laurie Sellers, LuAnn Snyder and Brent Thomlison for their amazing dedication to the public and outstanding accomplishments.
