MEDAL OF DISTINCTION OPEN FOR NOMINATIONS CLOSED END OF MAY 2/13/2018 8:01:38 AM
There is great pride that spans across all borders that the community of Strathroy-Caradoc. The Medal of Distinction program is back this year after it's inaugural year last year and the program was developed to recognize individuals, groups and organizations that stand out for their dedication, community service and devotion to the people and communities within the Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc. Mayor Joanne Vanderheyden says they were very pleased with how it went last year recognizing about 30 people and organizations and for this year the program continues with just a little change.
Also this year, anyone and everyone can complete a nomination form even Municipal staff. The Medal of Distinction is intended to be the highest municipal honour available to civilian residents and/or supporters of the Strathroy-Caradoc community but the medal is not intended to be part of the broader provincial or national honours system. The medal can be awarded to any individual only once in a lifetime unless the Strathroy-Caradoc Municipal Council specifically determines otherwise.
