God Bless You Canada

As we celebrate 150 years of Confederation in this fantastic country that we live in and enjoy, let us not forget those who we have lost and who gave of themselves that we could relish in this freedom of camping. There are some, who until recently were among us, whos company we indeed cherished. If you do nothing else, remember those friends who we have lost particularly this past year, and do what you are able, to ensure their memory carries on in our programs.

Let us celebrate 150 years, as Canada remains an example to the rest of the world, of how so many diverse cultures can grow as a united country. 

Enjoy, "God Bless You Canada"
