National Years of Service Program
The Canadian Diabetes Association recognizes volunteers for their years of service using a bronze, silver or gold plated lapel pin. Milestone years begin at five years and are awarded in increments of five thereafter. Volunteers also receive a certification of appreciation with their pin.
In 2011, nearly 900 community volunteers across Canada were presented with a Year of Service pin. Five individuals celebrated 30 years of service, two celebrated 35 years of service and most significantly one celebrated 40 years of service. In recognition for their outstanding commitment to continuing Dr. Banting’s legacy, they were presented with one of four of Dr. Banting’s Four Season’s Prints.
