Ottawa Chapter Ski Day - Mont Ste. Marie
On Friday March 1, 2013 Canada Company Ottawa Chapter made it possible for Serving (and retired) Regular (and Reserve) Forces personnel to be shown special appreciation by Mont Ste. Marie so that they and their families were able to ski and board for free.
Please see the video below for a great summary of the day's events. To view the video in full screen, once playing, hover your cursor over the video and click the full screen button (4 arrows pointing to corners)
The motto of Canada Company: Many Ways to Serve is well described in the words of LCol Patchett: "I, myself, recently returned from Afghanistan last fall and appreciate the opportunity to come out with family, with the military community and the members at large to mingle with them and to tell them about my experiences. I think it's a really great thing that Canada Company is doing and that the people here have done for us".
Big thanks go to Mont Ste. Marie, who donated all the passes to the Forces members and their families, provided subsidized food and their mountain. Special thanks as well to sponsors Colt, Farm Boy, MaxSys, Morguard and Murphy Ford Sales Ltd.
