Standard of the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba
The Lieutenant Governor's Historical Preservation and Promotion Award was established in 2010 by the Honourable Philip S.

The five people who will receive the award are –

and Gary Wowchuk from Swan River
In a press release, Lt.-Gov. Lee said “Manitobans care greatly about their history. For proof of that, consider the more than 150 museums, located in communities from the 49th parallel to the Hudson Bay, and more than 2,000 community history books covering cities, towns, villages and rural municipalities."
Congratulations to everyone!
