Five to be honoured with Lieutenant-Governor's awards

  • Print

Five Manitobans will be given Lieutenant Governor's awards for their dedication to remembering where they came from.

On Thursday, Lt.-Gov. Philip S. Lee will hand out the Lieutenant Governor's Award for Historical Preservation and Promotion to the following individuals: Ernest Braun (Niverville), Diane Haglund (Winnipeg), Frieda Jorheim (Inwood), John Francis Mavins (Springfield) and Gary Wowchuk (Swan River).

The five are being singled out for their "prolonged, meritorious service in the preservation and promotion of the province's rich history and heritage," according to the provincial statement.

Said Lee: "Manitobans care greatly about their history. For proof of that, consider the more than 150 museums, located in communities from the 49th parallel to the Hudson Bay, and more than 2,000 community history books covering cities, towns, villages and rural municipalities. Most of these would not exist without the loving care of volunteers and leaders such as the individuals being honoured."

The Lieutenant-Governor's Award for Historical Preservation and Promotion was established in 2010 and is presented in consultation with the Manitoba Historical Society.

Five individuals are awarded the recognition each year. Nominations received by the MHS before Feb. 27, 2015 will be considered for presentation around Manitoba Day 2015.
