Anna Greenhorn presented with Senate 150th Anniversary Medal

Anna Greenhorn

Recipient of Senate 150th Anniversary  Medal

 

November 29, 2017

 

The Senate 150th Anniversary Medal commemorates the first time senators came to Ottawa to sit in Parliament, on November 6, 1867. Senators each received 12 medals to award. The medals are being awarded to Canadians whose generosity, dedication, volunteerism and hard work make their communities a better place to live.

 

“Senators want to take this opportunity to reflect on the incredible contributions made by Canadians from all walks of life. We want to give some much-deserved recognition to Canadians who share the Senate’s goal of giving voice to people or issues that sometimes fly under the radar or don’t grab headlines.” Senator David Wells

 

“As the Senate celebrates a milestone anniversary of its own, this is an appropriate time to celebrate the volunteer work of Canadians. Not only are the medal highlighting the contributions of Canadians – from coast to coast, from all walks of life and from varied backgrounds – they also highlight the wide diversity of the people whose efforts make Canada great. Senator Serge Joyal

 

"Anna Greenhorn has made significant contributions to improving her community over the years through her efforts as a tireless volunteer. She was a founding member of the Board of Directors that established Country Roads Community Health Centre in 1988, bringing much needed health care to our underserviced area.

As a teacher with a passion for literacy, she was on the original Board of Directors that created Rideau Lakes Public Library. Anna was a municipal councilor for the Township of Bastard and Burgess, and also a member of County Council. She served in the United Church for years as a Sunday School teacher and trustee. 

Anna chairs the Beautification Committee in Philipsville, and is an active member of the Heritage Committee and the Lower Beverley Lake Park Board.

Anna enthusiastically champions and promotes her greatest interest, the heritage of the Rideau Lakes area. For more than forty years, she has given life to the history of the Old Stone Mill in Delta as a tour guide, fundraiser, secretary and advocate."

 

The front of the medal features the Senate’s badge and the reverse side depicts the Senate Chamber. A space is provided to inscribe the name of the recipient.

The medals are 7.6cm (3”) in diameter and made of Muntz metal (alloy of bronze, copper and zinc) with a matte bronze finish.

bb Culvert Screens

The Roads Department asks that if you see a culvert screen plugged, do not remove the screen. Please contact the Office to report it. It's easier for Staff to clear the screen than it is to clear the culvert. If you remove the screen, the beavers get right in the culvert and plug the end of it. When the screen is removed it makes the beaver's job easier and our job harder. Culverts are being checked regularly.  Thank you for your cooperation.
