As we approach the holiday season and reflect on the achievements the Legion has made in the past year, allow me to say simply but sincerely “Thank You” to all the members of the Legion, the Ladies Auxiliary and all of the volunteers and staff. You have made a difference in the lives of our Veterans, RCMP personnel and their families this past year though your loyalty and commitment.
You are an asset and a shining jewel of Canada’s largest service organization supporting Veterans and we wouldn’t have achieved the kind of success we had during this calendar year without your dedication.
For those members of the military and peace officers deployed away from home during this time of the year, we know that your hearts and minds are with your families back in Canada. May your work continue to bring others joy and comfort at this time of renewed hope for a peaceful world.
From my family to yours, may you all have a very Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year in 2016.
