Stratford Habitat volunteer receives Queen Diamond Jubilee medal

Stratford Gazette

Earlier this month, at the Habitat for Humanity Canada national conference in Toronto, Stratford’s Ric McGratten was recognized with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his exceptional contributions in furthering Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build affordable housing and promote home ownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.

“McGratten has been a vital part of the development of Habitat for Humanity in Perth County, as well as for Canada,” stated a press release. “He has been a true leader at Habitat and has selflessly put others before themselves to make the community a better place.”

By the end of 2012, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal will have been presented to 28 Habitat for Humanity volunteers, staff and donors across Canada.

In total, 60,000 Canadians are receiving the medal to celebrate significant contributions and achievements and to recognize those who have dedicated themselves to service their fellow citizens, their community and their country.
