Reflection

Recognition

medal

Yesterday I did a repeat of an event of 2015.  It was held at Toronto’s historic Anglican  cathedral and honoured a number who received the Order of the Diocese of Toronto for their volunteer commitments.  Several friends and colleagues were among them.  The citations covered an extraordinary range of activities from the simplest to work of national significance. Last year I was honoured to be among them.  The achievements cited as always are humbling and most say they wonder why they have been included. It was also inspiring to see that two of the women were in their mid 90’s and still going strong.

A few of us wore our medals.  It’s about the only place where doing so makes sense! But we caused some confusion for the official photographer – a last year medalist himself – who assumed we should be in the group picture.
