This year's medal recipients are Mark Arendz of Hartsville, Heather Cutcliffe of Augustine Cove, and Irene Jewell of York. The Insignia of the Order will be presented to each of them at a special investiture ceremony in October at Government House, Charlottetown.

The Order of Prince Edward Island is the highest honour the Province can bestow. It gives public recognition to individual Islanders whose efforts and accomplishments have been exemplary. There are many citizens who make remarkable contributions to the social, economic and cultural life of our province and its people and the Order of Prince Edward Island is a unique opportunity to honour them.
L to R: Heather Cutcliffe, Mark Arendz, Hon. Antoinette Perry, and Irene Jewell. The Order of Prince Edward Island Advisory Council received 40 nominations for this year's honour.
