In celebration of the 50th anniversary of our national flag, our Government is giving this proud Canadian symbol to fifty Canadians and organizations who have contributed significantly to the well-being of our citizens.
One of the fifty Canadians receiving a flag is Luanne Whitmarsh, CEO of Kerby Centre, in recognition of Kerby Centre’s commitment to delivering valuable social services to senior citizens of all income levels.
The flag was presented to Ms. Whitmarsh at a public event at Kerby Centre on Friday, February 20, 2015 by The Honourable Joan Crockatt, Member of Parliament for Calgary Centre.(photo: from left The Honourable Joan Crockatt, Member of Parliament for Calgary Centre; Hank Heerema, President of the Kerby Centre Board of Directors; Luanne Whitmarsh, Kerby Centre CEO)
