“IN THE SERVICE OF HUMANITY” - BRITISH COLUMBIANS NAMED TO THE ORDER OF ST. JOHN

VICTORIA, B.C., MAY 31, 2014 – Volunteers from throughout B.C. will be honoured in a formal ceremony at Government House at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 31, 2014, where they will be invested into the Order of St. John and be presented with the insignia of the grade in the Order they have achieved through service to their fellow Canadians.  The Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and Dame of Grace in the Order, will preside at the event.
