Long time Councillor will be awarded medal on Monday, November 26

Jack Ratcliffe has served 27 years as a City Councillor in Kimberley.

Another Kimberley resident will receive the prestigious Diamond Jubilee Medal next week.

City Councillor Jack Ratcliffe, who has served Council since 1982 except for one term (2008-2011 when he did not run), will be awarded the medal in Council Chambers at City Hall on Monday, November 26, 2012 at 7 p.m.

The medal will be presented by Columbia River Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald and Mayor Ron McRae.

The community is invited to attend the brief ceremony honouring Ratcliffe.

The Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada.  This commemorative medal will be presented to 60,000 deserving Canadians to celebrate significant contributions and achievements and to recognize those who have dedicated themselves to service to their fellow citizens, their community and their country.

In addition to 27 years on Council, where he currently chairs the Finance Committe, Ratcliffe is long time board member and advocate for the Kimberley Public Library. He also served with the Kimberley Community Development Society, Audit Committee and Parcel Tax Roll Review. He also spent many years with the Kimberley Air Cadet Squadron.
