Senate Medals

12 Senate medals were awarded in 2018 to past Presidents, representative of all past Presidents and membership.  During Founder's Day Celebrations in Februay, The Honourable Elizabeth Hubley awarded medals to twelve recipients of the PEI Women's Institute commemorating the 150th seating of the Senate. These recipients represented the entire WI membership across Prince Edward Island for their "enthusiasm, commitment and sheer hard work for making a real difference in the day-to-day lives of Islanders across the Province".  View here for a full list of recipients and details on this latest accolade.
