The history of Chain of Office
The Chain of Office originated with the Dukes of Normandy, and is intended to bear the official seal and arms of authority. Drayton Valley’s Chain of Office bears the official crest of the Town, the Alberta Shield, and two maple leafs all resting on a Canadian beaver pelt; with a medallion of Drayton Valley’s logo anchoring the back.
There are four blank medallions awaiting design ideas. Each medallion will serve to represent one of the four pillars to make Drayton Valley the unique community it is: Culture and Heritage, Community, Entrepreneurial Spirit, and Natural Environment.
Culture and Heritage- Drayton Valley is a young community but its culture and heritage have defined its history and will play a tremendous part in its future. The creative design for the medallion will showcase the importance and value of culture and heritage in the community.
Community- An interconnected network of people, businesses and organizations reside in Drayton Valley that collectively contribute to the vibrancy and prosperity of our community. We are welcoming to those who are new to the area and there is a spirit of generosity amongst those who live here. The creative design for this medallion will showcase our most treasured resource, the people who call Drayton Valley Home.
Entrepreneurial Spirit- Drayton Valley is Defined by hard-working and progressive people, and the residents of our town are exceptionally creative and always strive to find better solutions. Our history has been etched by our original entrepreneurs and our future as well. The creative design for this medallion will capture the essence of our entrepreneurial spirit and resiliency.
Natural Environment- Locate between the North Saskatchewan River and the Pembina River, the Town of Drayton Valley embraces its natural environment. Residents and visitors take part in outdoor activities throughout the year and the expansive trail system and green space throughout the Town reflect the community’s desire to showcase its natural environment. The creative design for this medallion will showcase the natural beauty and vibrancy of our community.
