About this event

Help us celebrate Western Canadians who have distinguished themselves in service to Canada. The dinner is a formal affair, military style, and a great excuse to put on your evening wear.

This year we celebrate Lt Gordon Flowerdew. He left his home in Walachin BC to serve with Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) in the First World War. On 30 March 1918 he successfuly led one of the last cavalry charges in Canadian Military History at the Battle of Moreuil Wood. Severly wounded, he died the next day and was awarded the Victoria Cross, posthumously, for his courage.

Our excellent keynote speaker this year is Rear Admiral (Retired) Roger Girouard.

Master of Ceremonies: Lt.Col. James D. Barrett

If there is a cancellation of the dinner due to the lingering pandemic, full refunds will be made for tickets purchased. Otherwise, there are no refunds. Tax receipts are available on request.

If you would like to support the efforts of Cascadia Priory and the Order of St George through this gala but are unable to attend what promises to be an excellent evening, consider sponsoring one of our guests, a guest of your choice, a Veteran, a local politician or a film student.

The Mounted Troop of Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) went to France in 2018 to recreate the 30 March 1918 charge at the Battle of Moreuil Wood as part of Centennial celebrations.

Lt Gordon Flowerdew - January 2nd 1885 - March 30 1918.
