Malcolm Fraser honoured for a lifetime of service

By Gordon Lambie

Malcolm Fraser, known by many in the Cookshire area for his longtime role as President of both the Cookshire Fair and the St. Paul’s Rest Home in Bury, was honoured on Saturday afternoon with the presentation of the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers. Although Fraser himself was not able to be present for health reasons, the medal was accepted on his behalf by several of his siblings. “We were twelve children, and there are six of us here today,” shared Winston Fraser, Malcolm’s brother, sharing that “Mac” was being recognized for years of dedicated volunteer service that have made an immeasurable impact on his community. The Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers recognizes the exceptional volunteer achievements of Canadians from across the country in a wide range of fields. The medal is designed in a way that is meant to highlight the caring and generousity of its recipients as well as recognizing the sacrifices they make of themselves and their time.
