The Honourable David C. Onley Lieutenant Governor of Ontario presented six Diamond Jubilee medals that evening. Jeff Thiessen, Branch Chairman of the Monarchists for Hamilton received the first one. Nathan Tidridge who had received his medal the day prior from Prince Charles led the Loyal Toast.

Fred Hayward had helped arrange the date for the Monarchists when the Lieutenant Governor was available. This all took place the day Nathan Tidridge launched his book, Canada’s Constitutional Monarchy, in Toronto, in the Lieutenant Governor’s suite.

Jeff Tiessen mentioned how nice it was to see a full table of Loyalists at this event. Fred and Margaret Hayward, Gloria Oakes, Gloria Howard, Bev Corsini and David and Ruth Nicholson represented the Hamilton Branch UELAC that evening.
