About the Honour Roll
The Deer Lodge Centre Foundation Honour Roll awards program was established in 2014, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation, to kick off the year-long celebration leading up to the 100th anniversary of Deer Lodge Centre in 2016.
The Honour Roll celebrates the giving spirit of volunteers and donors who are dedicated to making lives better. It recognizes a special member of our community – an individual, couple, organization or company – who has demonstrated outstanding spirit, loyalty and commitment to Deer Lodge Centre and the communities it serves.
Honour Roll nominees have made a remarkable contribution to Deer Lodge Centre, the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation or the Canadian military and our veterans – for and by whom this facility was originally established in 1916.
