February 5, 2013, Guelph, ON Mayor Karen Farbridge has been honoured with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal in recognition of her contributions to the local community and Canada.

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) selected Mayor Farbridge to receive the medal.

"I am humbled to accept this medal and I would like to thank FCM for not only recognizing me but the City of Guelph's efforts in building a great City," noted Mayor Farbridge.

In an e-mail notification last week to Mayor Farbridge, FCM President Karen Leibovici said, "FCM chose you to receive this distinction for your exemplary efforts to make your community a great place to live."

President Leibovici further noted that, "In partnership with other local leaders, and with federal, provincial and territorial governments, your municipality is helping to build a safer, stronger and more prosperous future for your community and all Canadians."

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's accession to the throne in 1952. During the year of celebrations, 60,000 deserving Canadians will be recognized.
