A barn quilt called “Queen Victoria’s Crown” was a fitting backdrop for a gathering of Essex Town Council on Saturday, September 5th.

The 8-foot-square barn quilt on the property of Janet Cobban and Tim Cope located on County Road 50 East and recognizes Queen Elizabeth II as the longest-reigning British head of state, the longest-reigning female monarch in history, and the longest-reigning Sovereign of Canada since Confederation.

The Queen will achieve this remarkable milestone on Wednesday, September 9th by surpassing the length of Queen Victoria’s reign by one day, bringing Her Majesty’s reign to 63 years, 7 months and 3 days.

“Unless you’ve been around as long as I have,” said Mayor Ron McDermott, “it is likely that Queen Elizabeth is the only Monarch you’ve ever known.”
“How fortunate we have been to benefit from her longevity and good example. She is now, and has always been, an inspiring symbol of stability, dedication and selfless service. Of this we are deeply proud.”
