Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey spoke in the Legislature last week on the work of Gerry Clark and Don Peake who were awarded the Lieutenant Governors Historical Preservation and Promotional Award. He explained Gerry and Don were two of five Manitobans who were celebrated for their prolonged, meritorious service in the preservation and promotion of the province’s rich history. He noted through their efforts they have assisted in keeping Flin Flon’s history safe for future generations and allowed the story of Flin Flon’s history to be passed on to our children. He said both of these individuals have dedicated a significant amount of time, energy and effort as they have passionately pursued the preservation of their community’s history.
After reviewing the background for the awards Lindsey added they have ensured that the stories of the past were not forgotten but will be kept for future Manitobans to discover and learn from.
