Alberni Friendship Centre man earns Queen Jubilee honours

Tim George, a volunteer at the Port Alberni Friendship Centre for 26 years, was awarded with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal for his service

Tim George has been a mainstay at the Port Alberni Friendship Centre for the past 26 years. Last week he was honoured for his volunteerism with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal.

The medals have been awarded to volunteers across Canada in celebration of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation. There were 33 medals reserved for friendship centres across Canada.

Nomination applications were to be 40 words or less. Friendship centre staff and volunteers collected a word each describing George and put together his nomination: “Tim is always there offering unconditional help. He is thoughtful, friendly, amazing, calm, kind-hearted, generous, invaluable and altruistic…He rarely says ‘no’ to anything you ask of him.”

Along with his medal George also received a certificate signed by the Governor General of Canada.
