Sonny Del-Rio Receives Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal

Local rock legend, Sonny Del-Rio was one of 30 prestigious Hamiltonians who received Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals.  The veteran musician was recognized for his wonderful charity and musical contributions to Hamilton.  Mountain MP Chris Charlton handed out the awards on November 4, 2012 at Michaelangelo's.

Sonny was beaming with much-deserved pride on his Facebook page: "I am so excited to be awarded the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal! Can you believe it?! I am thrilled, humbled, and extremely proud!"
