Vomberg, Schudeleit awarded Diamond Jubilee medals

Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony pins a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal to Anne Schudeleit’s jacket during a ceremony at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel on Thursday evevning.

Lilly Vomberg of Hope and Anne Schudeleit of Boston Bar were among the recipients of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals presented last week.

The medals are part Lilly Vombertof 700 awards distributed to British Columbians to mark Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.

Vomberg, who was awarded her medal in a ceremony at the Hope Legion on Saturday, has been active in the community in a number of capacities, highlighted by 39 years of service with the Ladies Auxiliary to the Royal Canadian Legion. During that time, she has filled most of the organization’s executive positions and served on numerous committees.

Vomberg has also been involved with the Girl Guides of Canada, and was on the founding executive for Hope Community Services.

At her presentation in Chilliwack last Thursday, Schudeleit was heralded as the “saviour” of Boston Bar.

She is well known in the Boston Bar area, both for her volunteer work and her love of gardening. She helped create a community park on Gibson Road and is celebrated for her rose garden at the local RCMP detachment.

But one achievement stood out above others at Thursday’s ceremony. Schudeleit successfully brought cable television to the Fraser Canyon.

In her presentation of the award, Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony cited Schudeleit’s “consistent commitment to the community of Boston Bar and the Fraser Canyon (where she has lived her entire life), and her successful campaign to provide television cable service to all residents of Boston Bar, regardless of income.”
