CITIZENSHIP AWARDS

Awards - It has been a privilege and an honor to serve in my community in the capacity of sharing my experiences through music and motivational speaking. I have been very blessed through this experience and would like to thank Kelly McLauglin, former Head of Volunteerism at Ontario Correctional Institute and Vanier Women's Prison, for nominating me leading to the Solicitor General Community Award. I would like to thank Mike Foley from O.C.I. and Vanier who nominated me for the 2002 Ontario Service Awards (10yrs) and the Honorable Carl DeFaria, Minister of Citizenship and the Honorable Ernie Eaves, Premier of Ontario, for presenting me with this distinction. I would also like to thank Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth for her kind words of encouragement to all the volunteers. God bless! -D Brooks

1995: Ontario Ministry of the Solicitor General and Correctional Services Community Services Award: In grateful recognition of your contributions as a volunteer worker to the programs operated for the benefit of those persons served by the Ministry of the Solicitor General/Correctional Services

2002: Ontario Volunteer Service Award: In honor of your commitment to volunteerism 10 years.


On behalf of the Government of Ontario, please accept my sincere congratulations on receiving our province's Volunteer Service Award for which you were nominated by the Ministry of Public Safety and Security-Vanier. I am particularly pleased to offer my congratulations during this year as we celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Golden Jubilee. A key theme chosen by Her Majesty for her Golden Jubilee is giving thanks for service to community through voluntary efforts. In a statement released on February 6th this year, the actual day of the golden anniversary, Queen Elizabeth stated, "It is especially an opportunity to thank all those who help others in your own local communities through public or voluntary service. I would like to think that your work will be particularly recognized during this jubilee year."

The Honorable Carl DeFaria/ Minister of Citizenship
The Honorable Ernie Eaves/ Premier of Ontario
