Artistic pride: Technical Services designs commemorative panel for Government House
The Department of Technical Services played a significant role in the design and fabrication of a new display that’s now permanently mounted at Government House.
The department’s model making and fabrication shops manufactured a wooden panel featuring the names of viceregal consorts – the partners of current and past lieutenant-governors of Newfoundland and Labrador. The panel commemorates the commitment and efforts the consorts have made over the years.
The artwork was unveiled during a ceremony hosted by Lt.-Gov. Frank F. Fagan and Patricia Fagan on Feb. 1.
“The staff at Government House, including the lieutenant-governor and his wife were delighted with the work,” said Rick Meaney, director, Department of Technical Services.
“There was certainly a great deal of pride displayed by our staff and acknowledgement of Memorial generally, our department and employees was greatly appreciated.”
Mr. Meaney says the panel demonstrates the unique skill set at Memorial and the collaborative efforts between the various units within the department.
The Department of Technical Services is a unit within the Office of the Vice-President (Research).
