Diamond Jubilee presentation in Golden

The family of Paul Hambruch will be accepting Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal at a Rotary Club of Golden meeting on Nov. 22.

Hambruch, who was a long time member of the Rotary, passed away in October before the award could be presented. Members of his family, including his widow Ingrid, will be on hand for the presentation from MLA Norm Macdonald.

“I will be presenting the award to Ingrid at the Rotary. He loved the organization and was very active in it,” said Macdonald. “I knew Paul going back to my time on Golden council as mayor. He was always very active in the community and of course even well beyond the work we would do together.  He was on many other organizations.”

Macdonald said the award is something truly special for the families as well as the recipients.

“The Diamond Jubilee is about a lifetime of service. It is about long standing service and I think the decision to share the Diamond Jubilee with people and communities has been a great idea. The Governor General has done a tremendous job organizing people in communities and certainly Paul represented that idea of long standing service to the community that clearly he loved,” he said. “This is something that I know he would have appreciated. It was in the works a long time ago and with his passing Ingrid and his family will be accepting.”

Chris Hambruch (Paul’s son) will also be at the presentation and feels it is something his father would have been very grateful  for.

“I am sure he would have been very touched by it. Very appreciative for all that he has done,” he said. “The ideals of Rotary was something dad lived his life by.”
