John Adamache of Limerick and his son Steve of Assiniboia, in their fourth generation of farming, were among them.
"It feels pretty good to be recognized for contributing to the opening up of the country," said John, whose grandfather homesteaded in the Limerick district with a group of immigrants from Romania around 1907.
