Hi all,

On Monday, both "A" & "B" Colonies will be meeting at Stephen Leacock Public
School to celebrate Remembrance Day.  Joining us will be Lieutenant Colonel
Pete JW Saunders of the Canadian Air Force (and his daughter Rebecca) to
discuss the significance of Remembrance Day.  If time permits, we will also
be doing a poppy craft, parent helpers are welcome.

We will be starting at the usual time of 6pm.

Bio of Lieutenant Colonel Pete JW Saunders
LCol Saunders enrolled in the Canadian Forces in March 1990. He has worked
in the Sea King Helicopter community on both the east and west coasts of
Canada. LCol Saunders has served in Afghanistan, the NATO exercise Operation
Active Endeavour and in Bahrain. He currently serves as the Career Manager
for the entire Canadian Air Force. He holds a Bachelor's and two Masters
degrees and has won awards for his work at the Department of National
Defense. In his free time, LCol Saunders busies himself renovating his
century home (at which he is adept) creating gourmet meals (at which he is a
master) and trying to play lead guitar to a variety of AC-DC tunes (albeit
with a distressing lack of skill and success).
