As part of the Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the Throne, the Canadian Police Association through the Chancellery of Honours at Rideau Hall, provided the OPP Association with a number of medals to present to our membership.
Incorporating the Chancellery’s criteria, Branch 12S and OPPA head office awarded medals to Connie Young, Paul Caccamo, Tracey Boisvert, Ann Naveau, Cindy Bahm, Jason Smith, Cori Hughes and Eileen Berthelette all these members have made a positive contribution to the police labour community.
PC Dan Bellefeuille from Parry Sound detachment has been arm wrestling since he was 14 years old, he started at a club in Kirkland Lake and has competed in tournaments all over the world. As a teenager he remembers feeling like a hero within his small community after returning from a tournament.
Now as an adult he has started his own team in Parry Sound. The team includes pullers from all ages attending practices and travelling to local tournaments as a team. Branch 12S assisted the team in purchasing team shirts, now they look and feel like a team! Good luck, and we wish them great success!
“Special thanks to 12S for helping with the cost of our team shirts, and those who supported us. “
