Lieutenant-Governor Plans Tea with Those Born in 1926 to Celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday on April 21

The Honourable Janice Filmon, lieutenant-governor of Manitoba, is encouraging Manitobans who share a 1926 birthdate with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to register for an invitation to a birthday tea on April 21stat 2:30 p.m. at Government House in honour of the 90th birthday of Her Majesty.

“On Sept. 9, 2015, Her Majesty became the longest-reigning monarch in the long history of Great Britain – and the shorter history of Canada – surpassing her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria. On April 21, we will celebrate her 90th birthday and it seems appropriate to mark the occasion with those who share her birth year.” said the lieutenant-governor.

“Three generations of Canadians have come of age during Her Majesty’s reign. Throughout this historic reign, she has extoled the value of service to community and country and she has made that a theme of speeches on many of the royal visits she has undertaken over six decades. I look forward to celebrating those who have also experienced the passing of nine decades and have witnessed her many visits to our province.”

The first 60 people who register will receive an invitation for themselves and a guest to join Lt.-Gov. Filmon for tea in recognition of this special milestone. Please contact the Office of the Lieutenant Governor’s at 204-945-2753 and register with your name, birthdate, address and the name of the accompanying guest for this special birthday party and an invitation will be mailed to you.
