Hello Ladies,

These are the result of the survey is in. Reunion 15 will take place in Winnipeg, MB. Specific details will be released as arraingements are made. The Executive would like to hear from those who offered to help out at Reunion 15 and from anyone else who would like to be a part of the Winnipeg committee. Please contact us here.

Veteran's Service Card: 

All CAF Veterans may now apply. Click on the link below to find out how to apply.  

Polos and Vests:  

As interest in the polo shirts and vests has waned, this will be our last request to get orders. Right now we have two polos and four vests on the waitlist. We will put the last order in this spring, if we have enough interest. If you are putting in an order the sizes available are: Woman's and Men's: small; medium; large; XL; 2XL; 3XL. If there is enough interest to fill an order for 12 of either we will put in another order. If your own group would like to place an order for a minimum of twelve polos or twelve vests, that can be sent directly to your group please let us know.  Click here to contact us.



When you receive cards or letters from your friends and family, keep envelope with the stamp on it. When you get a chance read how to prepare the stamp below. When you have removed the corner of the envelope with the stamp attached, keep all of your stamps in a spare envelope until you have time to send them to Flo.

Although I don't remember Jane at 11 Supply Depot in Calgary, we were there at the same time and I have a number of photos that I took at the base.  One of them t is actually of the baseball team and the only one whose name I recall is Fran Leach.  If Jane would like these pictures, please have her get in touch via her email and I will send them back as attachments.     Dorothy from Nova Scotia

Very interesting letter this month from Jane McCarty.  I was at several of the bases that she mentioned, and I was on course 119.  So our paths may have crossed. Would you have an email address for her, I would like to contact her.     Evelyn from Ontario
