Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal
2012 marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession of the throne. To celebrate, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal was created. The last time the Diamond Jubilee medals were presented was during Queen Victoria’s reign in 1867.

Today, the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) is pleased to announce that fifty-five (55) members of the lacrosse community have joined a very exclusive club amongst Commonwealth countries as they are recipients of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal. This commemorative medal is a tangible and lasting way to pay tribute to those Canadians whose achievements have benefited their fellow citizens, their community, their organization and the country. It provides an opportunity to look back and recognize those who have made lacrosse what it is today. These fifty-five individuals represent the backbone of Canadian lacrosse; they are the volunteers, the builders of our sport, administrators, coaches, and players. They give tirelessly to the sport they are so passionate about and as such the CLA is thrilled to have the opportunity to honour each of them.

The CLA wishes to congratulate all the recipients; their commitment to Canada’s national summer sport is strengthened when we collectively pay homage to those who distinguished themselves by virtue of their talents, their generosity, and their service to their community, sport and to our country. Lacrosse is better for the all the contributions and time you each have given throughout the years.

1907 Noc New Westminster  
Sapperton Park
The establishment of the Sapperton Junior Lacrosse Club in 1900 was the impetus for the creation of Sapperton Park. The project was spearheaded by a group of more than 75 local residents that included Sapperton pioneer Jack Cambridge, an avid sports enthusiast who worked as the Registrar at the New Westminster courthouse. Cambridge was the fi eld captain for the new team, while infl uential Nels Nelson, who operated the West-minster Brewery, was President. The lacrosse team played on a privately-owned, makeshift lacrosse fi eld, as there were no existing public parks in the city’s east end. Despite the lack of adequate playing facilities, the new team included many talented players, and scored many victories. It not only won the city’s junior lacrosse championship, but the support of nearly every resident of Sapperton as well.

The site may have been offered for donation in 1903 to the citizens of Sapperton by the landowner. Later minutes record that the park was finally established in 1907 when Council granted the funds to clear the site in time for the lacrosse season.
