“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.

                   For almost a century, members of St. John Ambulance have served the people of British Columbia, continuing a tradition of caring that has its roots in the Crusades. The 2,000 members of British Columbia and Yukon St. John Ambulance provide close to a quarter-million hours of community service annually, and the organization trains more than 100,000 people per year in emergency response and lifesaving techniques.
