requested, by presenting a framed certificate, to be signed and sealed by the
Reeve (or an alternate member of Council
where the Reeve is not available) of the R.M. of Wallace-Woodworth.
Certificates may then be presented by the Reeve or an alternate Councillor, to the individual, team, organization and/or business, as determined by the individual situation, request, and availability of Council to make the presentation for the same.

All special message requests must be accompanied by a short history. Special messages can also be requested for business or community groups celebrating special anniversaries or special milestones.
