White Rock-South Surrey-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert greets visitors at his July 1 barbecue.

Hiebert hosts Canada Day barbecue

Longtime Peninsula volunteer honoured with Queen's Diamond Jubilee medal.

Dozens of hungry Peninsula residents lined up to celebrate the nation’s 146th birthday last week with a free Canada Day barbecue hosted by White Rock-South Surrey-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert.

Approximately 900 people enjoyed hamburgers at Bakerview Park July 1, along with children’s activities and the chance to view the world’s largest map of Canada, which is currently touring the country.

Hiebert took the opportunity to also present a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal to local volunteer Donna Beaudry, who has been involved with the Miss White Rock Youth Ambassador program since 1974.

“Donna spends her time mentoring teens to develop their full potential in volunteering at many events and service organizations in their local community and to help build on their communication and leadership skills,” Hiebert said in a release.
