Capt Peter Beatty was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada in a ceremony conducted in the Senate Chambers on Saturday, Jun 23, 2012 . His Excellency the Governor General presented eight Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals to deserving St. John volunteers, representing the diversity of the membership of St. John across Canada.
Capt Beatty also received his Letters Patent from Dr. Forrest Pass (Saguenay Herald) from the Chancellery of Honours in a ceremony conducted in the Ottawa Army Officers’ Mess on 26 Jun 2012. Grants of armorial bearings are honours from the Canadian Crown that provide recognition for Canadian individuals and corporate bodies and the contributions they make both in Canada and elsewhere. Called letters patent, the official document includes the final artistic illustration of the armorial bearings accompanied by a legal text. Signed by the appropriate officials, the seal of the Canadian Heraldic Authority is applied and the grant is entered in the Public Register of Arms, Flags and Badges of Canada, and the official notice of the grant is published in Part I of the Canada Gazette.
Today was the big day in shaving off my hair in support of Sailors for a Cure. Attached is a photograph of me with Petty Officer Bruce Bevil. Bruce is the man behind Sailors for a Cure, a cause he created in support of his sister-in-law who has been battling cancer for the past 9 years. All funds raised in the name of Sailors for a Cure are directly donated to one of two registered charities; Wellspring and Canadian Cancer Foundation.
By the time my hair was buzzed off this morning, we raised a total of $2072.39 towards the head shaving. I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful generosity and support. Also, after the head shaving, I received numerous words of thanks from both organizations and from Bruce’s family and I want to pass their gratitude on to you. YOU have had a dramatic impact on the lives of many. You may never see it, but with all your heart, know that you have made a difference.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart,
