Canadian Veterans Advocacy Annual Rendezvous  – JULY 7 2012

1300      Arrive at RCL Branch 124, 410 Kings street, approx 1300

* The drive is organized so that you might feel free to stop at any of the historical attractions as you wish and while we will all leave in incremental groups or solo, the object is to instil a feeling of respect for Canadians and Americans who fought two hundred years ago this year as enemies and now, as allies, in Afghanistan today. We would encourage you to stop at Brocks monument, or at the site of the Battle of Ridgeway, get some pictures, embrace your Canadian heritage… Drive safely, in numbers or alone, and enjoy all that Niagara has to offer.
