Putting fam­i­lies first

7th an­nual Fam­ily Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Days a cel­e­bra­tion of what mat­ters most

Guard of Honour - - FRONT PAGE - Col Richard Goodyear CFSU(O) Com­man­dant

June is Re­cre­ation Month across the De­fence Com­mu­nity and cel­e­bra­tions started with a bang in the NCR with the 7 th an­nual Fam­ily Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Days. We had the largest crowd ever this year with 7,500 peo­ple at­tend­ing on Satur­day alone and ap­prox­i­mately 10,000 De­fence Com­mu­nity mem­bers and their fam­i­lies par­tic­i­pat­ing over the two-day event. I want to thank our spon­sors and our vol­un­teers for help­ing us make it an out­stand­ing event. I hope De­fence mem­bers and their fam­i­lies en­joyed the two days of mid­way fun.

In Car­ling Cam­pus news, the orientation ses­sions have ended for this ro­ta­tion as the moves to build­ings 8 and 9 are com­plete. The next time we will re­con­vene will be later in July as we be­gin to pop­u­late build­ing 6.

On June 5, we suc­cess­fully hosted the Pres­i­dent of Chile at Rideau Hall.

Fi­nally, CFSU(O) will be say­ing farewell to its mem­bers posted out this sum­mer dur­ing a unit event on June 16 at CRPTC. Chief Dubuc and I would like to thank all of them for their ded­i­ca­tion and hard work. We wish you all the best in your new post­ing.

The Guard of Honour wants to hear your sto­ries. We en­cour­age ev­ery mem­ber of the lo­cal De­fence com­mu­nity to sub­mit ar­ti­cles and pho­tos they would like to share with their peers. If you have an event, a pro­gram up­date or an ac­com­plish­ment to pro­mote, or know of some­one who does, please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us at gh@forces.gc.ca.
