Regional director Kerry Bruder of Hamilton presented Drayton woman Alice Van Ankum with a certificate and Queen’s Jubilee Medal. Bruder noted that when he needs to share a story about the heart of volunteerism, he always starts with Van Ankum from the volunteer branch in Harriston, telling of her 37-year commitment to helping people with diabetes. He commended her for being the rock for her husband George, who has lived with diabetes for over 50 years. Bruder said he truly felt honoured to be able to present this award to Alice, one of the most deserving volunteers of the CDA.
