GUELPH, ON, May 30, 2012 – Guelph City Council will commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II at its June 5, 2012 meeting. The public is welcome to attend.

The Guelph Chamber Choir will be on hand to sing both O Canada and God Save The Queen. The Choir will be touring to England in July, where they will be representing Guelph and singing at Westminster Hall as part of Royal Jubilee celebrations.

A slideshow of images from the Queen’s visit to Guelph in 1959 will also be presented, and Mayor Farbridge will offer remarks.

All day on June 5, the Union Jack will be flying at City Hall in honour of the Queen.

In addition, the floral clock at Riverside Park will display the official logo of the Diamond Jubilee all summer.

2012 is the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. Celebrations are taking place throughout the year across Canada, other Commonwealth countries, and the United Kingdom.
