      Canadian Veterans National Rendezvous-2011

      Outstanding news! The Canadian Veterans National Rendezvous is being organized for July 8 - 10, 2011 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The Rendezvous will be the centre piece of nation wide, celebratory events designed to celebrate the end of the Canadian combat mission in Afghanistan while honouring those patriots that have served in WW2, Korea, the Peacekeeping Era and former Yugoslavia. As such, we expect to generate both national attention and the attendance of prominent Canadian military and political figures to unite with us as we support our troops and veterans.

      We are reaching out to veterans from across Canada and the northeastern United States with a special invitation to active-duty military personnel and their families from Ontario and beyond. What a great way to rekindle the love, to reestablish family bonds tested by the war in Afghanistan. Niagara is truly beautiful in July and there are so many things to do! We are also encouraging veterans Motorcyclists and unit to travel to Niagara Falls for the weekend to participate in a variety of fun events.

      The highlights of Canadian Veterans National Rendezvous will include a motorcycle poker run through the breathtaking Niagara Region landscape beginning Saturday morning. Families are encouraged to visit Marineland or one of the many local attractions or visit the falls. A Support the Troops Rally will ensure your afternoon is filled with great fun! Musical entertainment of a variety of genres, food & beverage vendors, a motorcycle show and shine, a magnificent static display of vintage military vehicles, marching bands, a variety of fun-orientated activities for the kids and veterans alike. Around four, the official ceremonies will commence as we pay tribute to those who fight today and those who fought in yesteryear. Nigh time entertainment and fireworks will follow on site or you can visit the mighty Niagara to view the falls at night.

      The Rendezvous weekend concludes with a memorial ride Sunday morning from Fort George in Niagara on the Lake , down the picturesque Niagara Parkway to Fort Erie and then on to the Cpl. Albert Storm Memorial Playground at Lake Erie for a swim and a burger.

      Is it time for a second honeymoon?

      Is it time to bring the wife and kids to Niagara for a great vacation weekend that will be certain to be remembered for the rest of their lives?

      Time to take advantage of a special offer designed to express Niagara?s gratitude to our troops and our veterans?

      Further details will be announced shortly on our dedicated Canadians Veterans National Rendezvous website! Special accommodation packages, discounts on tourist attractions and a bevy of information relating to the activities taking place for veterans? entertainment during the Rendezvous weekend will be posted and I hope that you will take advantage of this remarkable opportunity.
