The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #75 (McBride) would like to thank the community for the great support on wreath and poppy campaign and for the support at the parade and ceremony at the Cenotaph in Steve Kolida Park.
Special acknowledgement to MLA Shirley Bond, MP Bob Zimmer, Regional District, C.U.P.E., and McBride Fire Department and to others who purchased and laid wreaths. Proceeds from the poppy fund support veterans and their families.
Thanks to all those individuals who contributed to our Remembrance Day ceremony including Bob Balcean (school and mobile sound system), Dave Hruby (parade marshal), Keith Berg (horn playing) Cassidy Brawn (for singing), and Rev. Andriy Antypov (scripture reading and prayer). Special thanks to the three members from the 1 Service Battalion out of Edmonton for travelling all this way to participate in the ceremony.
Thanks to the Beanery 2, members Donna, and Andy for preparing the great roast beef luncheon for the Legion. Thanks to all the helpers and staff who assisted with the meal.
Thanks to Integris Insurance (printing the pamphlets), the Little McBride Paper and the Goat Newspaper (advertising).
The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #75 (McBride) looks forward to continuing our contribution to the community in a variety of ways.
