Dear Retired Member of the Branch;
Welcome to the C&E Association Retired Officers and Senior NCMs Annual Dinner. This event will again be held without spouses/guests and will take place at the Vimy Officers Mess (VOM) on Friday, 1 June 2018 commencing at 1800 for 1915 hours. The dress for the evening in order of preference is dinner jacket, mess dress, suit and tie or equivalent for female attendees. Wearing of miniatures is encouraged.
The traditional focus of this dinner is to provide a forum for reminiscing, camaraderie, renewing old friendships and making new ones. It is a most pleasurable annual gathering, which we are privileged to attend in the beautiful and nostalgic surroundings of the Vimy Officers’ Mess. It will be an opportunity to acknowledge the retirement of senior members of the Branch, particularly the Branch Leader, MGen Greg Loos and BGen Rob Mazzolin
Keeping with the traditions of the original dinner, a formal seating plan will be in place.
Wild Apricot (available here) will be used to register your menu choice, your dietary concerns and post nominals. Payment is available via credit card or PayPal. If unable to do so, a cheque in the amount of $70.00 will be accepted in advance payable to the Canadian Military C&E Association and mailed to C&E Branch Adjutant, 9 Byng avenue, Kingston, ON, K7K 7B4. Your payment will need to be received by 24 May 2018 when the food order needs to be placed. As always, accommodation, on and off Base, will be at a premium so you are advised to book as soon as possible. Those who wish to book a round of golf should indicate their intentions on the registration form. If there is enough interest, an OPI will be appointed.
