The Last Post Fund’s Annual commemorative ceremony at the National Field of Honour was held on Sunday, June 3rd 2018. This year, the Guest of honour was Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence, Mrs. Sherry Romanado. The Last Post Fund would like to sincerely thank everyone who participated in the event.
It is with great honour that the Last Post Fund was awarded the Canadian Peacekeeping Veterans Association’s Outstanding Service Award. The award was presented on Friday, June 1st 2018, by Tim Sparling, CD, Vice President of the CPVA.
The CPVA was founded in 1991 and is a national, traditional, all Veteran, all volunteer, not-for-profit, apolitical, democratically and constitutionally based organization with Chapters from St.John's Newfoundland to Vancouver Island. The Association's Mission Statement is: "To be a strong and leading advocate for all Veterans and to provide a forum of comradeship for Veterans". As it is open to all Veterans, the CPVA's membership includes the entire spectrum of WW 2, Korean War, Peacekeeping, NATO, Balkan and Afghanistan campaigns, RCMP, civilian police and other Veterans, and international members.
Amongst the reasons cited by Mr. Sparling for bestowing this award on the Last Post Fund were the importance of the service the Fund delivers to Veterans and their families and also, the remarkable dedication with which the Fund has delivered the program, for nearly 110 years.
