Susanne Moore, recently retired Recreation Director for Macdonald Headingley Recreation District, was presented with the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (Manitoba) by Lieutenant Governor Anita Neville at a ceremony on December 19, 2022. Award recipients were nominated for their public service, dedication to others, impactful accomplishments in their community and leading by example. Susanne was nominated by MLA Myrna Driedger. 

Susanne has been a leader in Manitoba’s recreation community for over 30 years, and one of recreation’s biggest advocates, promoting recreation for its contribution to individual physical and mental health. Her career focused on building community capacity and creating a positive environment for citizens of all ages and abilities to grow and thrive. Along with providing innovative recreation programs and services to her communities, Susanne volunteered on numerous recreation initiatives that moved recreation forward in Manitoba. She was President of Recreation Connections Manitoba (now Recreation Manitoba), represented Manitoba at national level discussions, including the development of the National Framework for Recreation, and participated on many provincial committees. Susanne received the 2016 Recreation Connections Manitoba President’s Award for Outstanding Achievement for her volunteer commitment and leadership to recreation, and was the recipient of the 2017 CPRA Award of Merit for Manitoba.

Susanne’s engaging personality and professionalism as well as her tremendous wit and sense of humour contributed to her success in bringing recognition and credibility to the field of recreation. Susanne has been an influential leader and champion for recreation in her communities and municipalities as well as at a regional, provincial and national level. Not surprising that in retirement, Susanne continues to volunteer in her community!

Join us as we congratulate Susanne on this tremendous and well deserved honour of receiving the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (Manitoba).
