Prince George BC – A wave of red serge rolled through the Prince George Playhouse this morning as members of the RCMP North District were recognized for length of service or received special recognition for specific events.

This year, the annual  event had a flavour of past, present and future.

The past, was represented by  retired Staff Sergeant Pat McTiernan.  He  retired  in March of 2015,  having served  35 years, and received his gold clasp  recognizing those  three and a half decades of  service.  McTiernan  is well known in this region,  as he was a very public face for  traffic safety.

The present  saw  six members  receive  a bronze clasp for  25 years service  and  several  other members  officially recognized for  their actions that were above and beyond the call of duty.

The future saw two children , 6 year old Malahkaj Romancych and  8 year old sister Kandace, decked out in their mini-Mountie uniforms. minimountiesThe  two were on hand to celebrate  their father, Corporal Trevor Romanchych who was receiving  a District Officer’s Certificate of Appreciation
