With back to school and the Labour Day weekend around the corner, the long days of summer are drawing to a close. The pace of activities and events will pick up as we enter September.
Nonetheless, it was a busy summer, with the addition of two new members to the CFSU(O) team. I would like to welcome the new Senior Administrative Officer, Commander Ruth Dagenais, who is replacing Commander Daniel Bouchard, and Major Cindy Tessier, who is the new Public Affairs Officer, replacing Major Dave Sullivan.
We also commemorated National Peacekeepers’ Day on Aug. 9 with a ceremony honouring peacekeepers from the Canadian Armed Forces, the RCMP and UN veterans.
It is with great pleasure I am inviting military and civilian members to the 14th annual CFSU(O) Commandant’s golf tournament at Hylands Golf Club on Friday, Sept. 11. I hope to see you in great numbers as there will be a shotgun start at 0800 hrs on both north and south 18-hole courses for the 72 teams playing in the tournament.
Lastly, I would like to wish everyone a great end of the summer. The next edition of the Guard of Honour will be on Sept. 10, after the Labour Day long weekend.
