The Canadian medal is given to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
Both father and son are dedicated Rotarians, as well as contributing members of the Fort St. John community.
Neil Evans is a nurse in Fort St. John, who over the past two years, has had his hand in a number of community fundraisers and events. Between 2010 and 2011, he raised over $10,000 for Movember, and last year, organized a very fun-filled Crystal Cup Pond Hockey tournament on Charlie Lake.
Upon receiving the award, Neil Evans thanked his wife, son and family, saying “it’s a true honour to be given this award. I’d like to thank the city of Fort St. John and this is just the tip of the iceberg regarding community involvment.”
Larry Evans also has a long list of credentials making him a worthy candidate for the award. He is an active member of the Fort St. John City Council, former Fire Chief, and is involved in countless community events. If Frozen John wasn’t the city’s mascot, the honour would be given to Larry Evans.
After having the award pinned on his chest, Councillor Evans said, “thank you to everyone. What I do every day is for Fort St. John and I don’t plan on quitting any time soon. It’s a great great honour and I feel very privileged to be here.”
