Saturday, July 1st
Canada Day dawned amid bright blue skies, brilliant sunshine and gave way to the melodious roar of motorcycle pipes entering Kingsbrae Gardens in St. Andrews, N.B. This was the C.A.V. (Canadian Army Veterans Motorcycle Unit), friends, family and supporters, gathering to remember those who came before us; those who passed; those who came home. A Memorial Service to honour the lives lost in Afghanistan, the boys girls from your backyard. The service was followed with a wonderful lunch, provided by the staff of Kingsbrae.
