The ceremony marks the reigning monarch’s official birthday by granting individuals in Commonwealth countries appointment into national or dynastic orders, or the award of decorations and medals.
This year’s recipients include Cyril Felix who received the British Empire Medal for contribution to community and the art of calypso; and Theophilus Ferguson John and Father Thomas Raymond Laurent both of whom received the Officer of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for dedicated service to community and country; and for outstanding and dedicated service to church, community and country, respectively.
Prime Minister Dr. Kenny D. Anthony commended the award recipients on their hard work and patriotism.
“There are some who offer service because of love, and of course an inexplicable passion. Through service, the beauty of who they are and what they are, the quality of their humanity emerges. This honour is a recognition of your tremendous work and dedication to the cause of this country; and is an opportunity to say thank you.”
