In 1979 Alan Barker of Carleton Place was presented with the Good Citizenship Award Certificate by Ontario Premier William Davis. The award was presented at Queen’s Park, and was followed by a reception and later a formal dinner with the Queen Mother.
Doug Wiseman MPP for Lanark formerly introduced Alan Barker to Lt.-Gov Pauline Mc Gibbon during the award ceremony. The Lt. Governor pinned the medal onto Barker while quietly congratulating him. Melba is photographed with her husband below.
