St John Ambulance members recognised at Investiture

St John Ambulance WA has recognised more than 30 members for their exceptional service to the organisation at the annual Investiture of the Western Australian Commandery of the Order of St John.

The Investiture was held on Saturday, 6 April 2013 at the Government House Ballroom in Perth and was conducted by the Knight Commander, His Excellency Mr Malcolm McCusker, Governor of Western Australia.

At the ceremony, 32 members were presented to the audience for recognition. One was promoted to Dame of Grace, four members were promoted to Commander and four members were promoted to the grade of Officer.

Eight members were also presented with Commandery Commendations in recognition for their service to the organisation and three members were awarded 50 year certificates.

St John Ambulance Chief Executive Officer Tony Ahern thanked all members for their significant contribution to the organisation and for their ongoing commitment to the service of humanity.

“Being admitted to, or promoted within, the Order of St John is a great honour and we are very proud of those recognised this year,” Mr Ahern said.

“Most of the members recognised at the Investiture are volunteers with St John Ambulance WA and some have dedicated up to 57 years of service to caring for their community.

“The Investiture recognises each of these individuals longstanding commitment through a memorable ceremony that is rich in history.”

Mr Ahern said occasions such as this highlight the many remarkable volunteers and employees that are at the core of St John Ambulance.
