On Tuesday September 19, 2017 at Hamilton city hall, Mayor Fred Eisenberger presented Monarch Award winners with their plaques. All of the winners or their representatives were in attendance to accept and have photos taken with the mayor, who had some exciting news–but no details yet. The future of the Monarch Awards looks as bright as the butterfly that inspired them!
