Roy LaBuick, second-generation co-owner of the Minuteman Press franchise in Moose Jaw, Sask., was honoured to receive the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal at The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – 70 Years of Service event in Regina last fall.
At the event, Roy was joined by his wife Shannon along with his parents and fellow Minuteman Press co-owners Carol and John LaBuick.
In a letter to Roy announcing the award, City of Moose Jaw Mayor Clive Tolley wrote: “As you may be aware, prior to her passing, Queen Elizabeth II approved the creation of a commemorative medal in honour of the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada. This medal will be awarded to 7,000 residents of Saskatchewan who have made a significant contribution to Canada, Saskatchewan and their communities.
You have demonstrated exceptional qualities and outstanding service to our province in the field of Volunteer Service. I am pleased to advise that the City of Moose Jaw has nominated you to receive this honour as a lasting recognition of your dedication and service.”
At the event, Roy took the stage and received the medal from Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Russ Mirasty.
Roy LaBuick also received a certificate of acknowledgment in recognition of his “valuable contribution to the province” of Saskatchewan.
Roy said, “I was truly humbled to receive this medal in honour of Her Majesty. It was a real honour to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with my family and be recognized for service.”
