Com­man­dant’s cor­ner

Guard of Honour - - NEWS -

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.

As al­ways, the Guard of Hon­our wel­comes your ar­ti­cles and com­ments. If you are aware of in­ter­est­ing ac­tiv­i­ties or top­ics that you would like the Guard of Hon­our to pub­lish, feel free to con­tact us at gh@forces.gc.ca.
