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 and bannish the winter blahs.

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
