The 2017 recipients of the Order of Prince Edward Island will be honoured at a special investiture ceremony at Government House next week.
The Honourable H. Frank Lewis, Lieutenant Governor and Chancellor of the Order of PEI will confer the honour on Catherine Hennessey, the Honourable Catherine Callbeck, and James “Jimmy” MacAulay on Tuesday, September 26th at 7 p.m.
This year’s three recipients were selected from a total of 53 nominations. The honour is awarded as a means of recognizing those Islanders who have shown individual excellence or outstanding leadership in their community and in their chosen occupation or profession.
It is the highest honour that can be accorded to a citizen of Prince Edward Island.
