July 1, Ottawa


A message from Joan, one of our supporters:

Hi to anyone who might be anywhere in the vicinity of Ottawa on July 1st,

This year is the 95th Anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont Hamel when so many Newfoundlanders were killed. There will be a Memorial service at the War Memorial in downtown Ottawa at 830am. The Atlantic Voices Choir will be singing along with a children's choir from Newfoundland. It is always wonderful to have as many Newfoundland dogs as possible there in memory of "Sable Chief", the Newfoundland dog mascot of the Newfoundland Regiment during WWI. It also delights the many Newfoundlanders who come out for the ceremony to see our Newfoundland dogs. Tiika will be on stage as Mascot for Atlantic Voices, and hopefully as many as possible of you will be there with your dogs, too.

Looking forward to seeing you there. You might even get to see the new Royal couple!
