the following people were voted in for the year 2018:

Executive: Doug Earnshaw, Tanner Noel, Hap Hanson, Jeff Oesch, John Whieldon, Teresa Stark,

I will advise the public of what positions will be held by whom as soon as it has been determined.

I was appalled about an incident that took place at our Remembrance Day Ceremony. One of our
Veterans was wearing a medal, pinned on by his dear, since departed wife, which he proudly wore
for his stint in Vietnam. Someone went up to our Veteran and tore the medal off of his jacket, stating
it had no place in Canada! He then left, with the medal. Comrades, nobody has the right to do this
to anyone!! A Veteran is a Veteran, whether or not you agree with the war he fought in! To my way
of thinking, there is no war that has ever been popular, not Korea, not Vietnam, not World War II nor
World War I! Yet, our men and women fought for us regardless of where and when! They received
medals for what they did, for their bravery and sacrifice, and have every right to wear them proudly
on their uniforms! For someone to walk over to rip a medal from their jackets, simply because he
did not agree with the war, a medal earned for their service, is unforgiveable!! This is not our deci-
sion to make, ever! I dont know if the medal was, heaven forbid, thrown away or not. If it wasnt, I
would expect that it be brought to the Legion, with or without a letter of apology, no questions asked.
We will then have the honour of returning it to our deserving Veteran and make his Christmas a little
happier. After doing the wrong thing, please make it right. Thank you!
