Being the Queen’s birthday, the 2007 Queen’s birthday honours list was announced today. You can find out more about our honours system here. The full honours list can be viewed at the Governor-General’s website but unless you’re looking for someone in particular, there are far too many names to read.
Unfortunately, I can’t find a list of all the Canberrans honoured today. The closest I could find is a selection mentioned on Jon Stanhope’s media release.
So if you know someone who was honoured today, post a comment below telling us all a bit more about some of those people in Canberra who make a valuable contribution to the community.
