Congratulations to Wes Bailey and Ray Orb of Cupar for receiving this medal.
According to the R Town News: ( Feb 13 th 2013)
"The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada.
This medal recognizes outstanding Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life, and provides an opportunity to honor exceptional Canadians for their involvement to their fellow citizens, communities and province and to our great country."
Wes Bailey as one of his roles in our community is the backbone and glue that holds the Cupar and District Heritage Museum together. Thank you.

A special thank you to Donna and Bob Turner of Cupar for donating a scrapbook belonging to Iona Turner. The scrapbook contains photos and newspaper articles on WWII soldiers from Cupar and area. The book will require restoration as 70 year old glue does tend to dry up. There are also newpaper clippings of maps of Europe and chronology of events in both the first and second world wars. When restoration and duplication of the scrapbook are complete a copy will become available to the community for research purposes.
Too often these treasures end up in the garbage, another important part of our community history lost.
Thank you again Donna and Bob for saving this scrapbook so we can remember and acknowledge our local war heroes.
