A community appreciation event in honour of Canadian Armed Forces personnel based at CFB Shilo that have served in Operation UNIFIER in Ukraine.
The purpose of such an event is to say “Thank you” to the soldiers that have served in Operation UNIFIER and demonstrate our community’s appreciation for their service and contributions to both Canada’s and Ukraine’s security.
The event will be held on Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 3:00-6:00pm at Holy Eucharist Parish Centre located at 460 Munroe Avenue in Winnipeg, Manitoba to symbolically coincide with ‘Defender of Ukraine Day’ in Ukraine.
As a complimentary meal and refreshments will be served to the soldiers and event guests, we are seeking financial and/or material donations from community organisations, businesses and individuals in order to keep the event’s costs to a minimum. This event will also serve as a fundraiser to support medical and humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine.
