Members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 73 in Flin Flon held their annual Remembrance banquet Saturday night. Guest Speaker Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey called November 11th a special day to remember the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War as well as the veterans of all wars, those still serving and their families. He said it really becomes all our duty to make sure that the next generation remembers and we hope that none of our kids have to go to war, that none of our kids will ever be subjected to that but we need to be prepared in case and we need to make sure that our kids understand the importance of what we’re doing here today, of what the Legion does every day of the year and what November 11th is all about.
Lindsey added governments also must continue to support veterans and recognize the sacrifices they have made.
Past officer medals were awarded to Lane Tennant, Brad Slugoski and Rejean Dumais and executive bars were presented to 1st Vice-President Ron Baschuk, Public Relations Terry Smith and Honors and Awards and Constitution and Laws bars to Bob Njegovan. Five year to forty-five year service pins were presented to Legion members.
