Blast From the Past–Remembering Alan Barker– July 4 1979




1952 Calendar


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.
