50th Anniversary Recognition Coin
Nominated by the Support Committee, Ms. Blakeley is a well-organized person and during the four-plus years as Chair of our Support Committee, she ran the committee in an efficient manner and had a group of loyal, mostly long-term volunteers who worked well together under her leadership. Her dealings with the Corps Commanding Officer were always civil and constructive which enables both the corps and volunteer personnel to function in a positive manner.
Ms. Blakeley volunteered for 10 plus years with the Support Committee and still maintains a connection with the Corps through an annual award set up in memory of her mother, also a past volunteer, for the cadet who raises the most funds which she presents at our Annual Ceremonial Review ceremony in June of each year.
Ms. Blakeley has been a valuable asset to the 557 Lorne Scots Army Cadet Corps and is most deserving of the 50th Anniversary Volunteer Recognition Coin for exceptional service.
