Long-time community volunteer.
Jubilee medal winner, Becotte.

A District Deputy with the Alberta Elks Club for the past eight years – Dawson Creek's Doug Becotte has been awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal.

President of DC Minor Hockey, as well as the golf club, Becotte has a history of philanthropy and volunteering in the Mile Zero.

Becotte says he started with the Elks Club in February of 1981. He has also spent time volunteering with the Knights of Columbia and umpired a fair amount of fastball and slowball in Mile Zero. Thirty years ago he was instrumental in rebuilding and reworking of the Elks Hall with other members.

Alberta Elks Association handed out 10 medals to recipients in their fold across the province.

He was awarded the medal last week in Grande Prairie by Grand Exalted Ruler Leonard Shain on Jan. 19, after being nominated by past provincial president, Ken Fedoruk.
