Holding a title for 60 years is quite a feat, according to Frank Elsner.
The city's top cop said it with a smile, while talking about Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
In honour of her diamond jubilee, the Sudbury Multicultural and Folk Arts Association is holding a family fun day July 22 at the Steelworkers Hall.
Dr. Rayudu Koka, president of the SMFAA, said the entire community is invited to celebrate and recognize the time the Queen has spent leading the commonwealth.
“Of course she's a great lady,” he said.
The celebration will include the singing of O'Canada, as well as God Save the Queen, and family attractions like pony rides, a magic show, clowns, door prizes and tasty treats.
A number of local students will present posters, too, and be given medallions in appreciation for their work.
On May 4, 15 Sudburians were honoured with Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medals for their commitment to their communities.
"Tonight we celebrate you, your accomplishments and your willingness to give of yourself for the common good," Sudbury MP Glenn Thibeault said. "From working with local charities, like the food bank, to standing up for our democracy and for our environment, from doing the little things that help someone in need to the big things that make a difference in the life of thousands, each of you award recipients this evening make us all proud to call ourselves Sudburians and Canadians."
