Past president Carl Larsen introduces the evening's speaker, Superintendant Paul Richards, MOM SBStJ MA. Carl mentioned that Paul is currently the most highly decorated RCMP officer.
Paul Richards gives a very interesting reflection on his past heraldic exposure and activities, from the little "The Observer's Book of Heraldry" to using symbology to fight terrorism.
Member Gerald McKinnon receives a certificate from president John Neill testifying that he has achieved the top level in Heraldry Proficiency and is now considered a Licientiate of our august Society. Congratulations, Gerald! Gerald has recently petitioned the Crown for a coat of arms.
