July 9, 2013
It is with great enthusiasm the Canadian Legacy Project announces their President, David Howard, was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. During a ceremony held at the Alberta-NWT Command Legion head offices, David Howard received this prestigious award from Alberta’s Lieutenant Governor Donald S. Ethell. David Howard was recognized for his efforts in support of our Canada’s Veterans and Seniors through the Calgary Veterans and Seniors Food Drive and the Calgary Seniors Walk – both of which David Howard founded and continues to manage today.
“It is certainly an honor to be recognized for the work we are doing within our community. Unfortunately many of our seniors and veterans are living in poverty and they need our support and a voice within our communities.” stated David Howard upon receiving the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. “The Canadian Legacy Project was founded to support our Veterans, Seniors, and disadvantaged Youth and our little non-profit is doing great work within the community and I am proud of what we have accomplished and excited about what the future holds for the organisation.” stated Howard
Created in 2012 to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, this commemorative medal served to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
The Canadian Legacy Project is a non-profit foundation working across Canada. The Canadian Legacy Project was created because many of our youth, seniors and veterans are living in poverty and do not have the basic necessities in food, clothing and shelter. The Canadian Legacy Foundation is designed to support our disadvantaged youth, seniors and veterans and develop programs and events to help improve their everyday lives. www.canadianlegacy.org
