Our very own Dave Shaw was awarded the “Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal” at a ceremony held last night at the Royal Brock Hotel in Brockville. The award serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians, and in Dave’s case, an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada.
The members and Board of Canadian Aid for Chernobyl are very proud of Dave for being recognized with this honour. It is his personal vision, care, passion and commitment that drives our humanitarian aid program and this award stands as confirmation that his community agrees with that direction. Dave has previously received other honours for this work including being the First Canadian awarded the “Order of Belarus” by the President of the Republic of Belarus.
Here is a picture of Dave receiving his award from Senator Bob Runciman, MPP Steve Clark and MP Gord Brown.
and a picture with his proud family; daughter Riley, mother Denise and his wife Susan.
Congratulations Dave, well deserved!
On behalf of the Board and members of Canadian Aid for Chernobyl
