National Horseback Ride for Veterans - August 18, 2015

Comrades of Branch 110 Colour Party and the Ladies Auxiliary Colour Party were honoured to take part in the ceremony at the Afghanistan Memorial in Bain Park for the National Horseback Ride for Veterans.  Military Veteran Paul Nichols, his wife, and a team of volunteers have been traveling on horseback across the country for the past several months using riding/walking trails and visiting the various Legions throughout Canada.  Their purpose is to make Canadians aware of our Veterans, the impact it has not only on our Veterans but their families as well, and to raise funds for Veterans.  Their travels will take them to Newfoundland where they hope to arrive in time for Remembrance Day, November 11.
