Crowfoot MP Kevin Sorenson recently presented Judi Wilson, Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame secretary-treasurer, with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. Sorenson had his constituents nominate people from their area they felt are a worthy recipient of the medal.
“She has been involved in Credit Unions and in other things in the community as well and so I thought she was very worthy recipient of that,” stated Sorenson.
Wilson was a key player in getting the Hall of Fame set up in its new home, upstairs in the Calnash Ag Event Centre. During the spring of 2012 Judi spent countless hours gathering artifacts and arranging them for display. She then spent many hours there during the 2012 Ponoka Stampede, greeting visitors from near and far.
