150th Anniversary Planning is Ramping Up!
The Organizing Committee continues to make good progress on plans for the 150th. Our dedicated website is now live (www.ggfg150.ca) and I encourage everyone to visit it often to find out more about the Regiment, our history, upcoming events and 150th merchandise for sale that will be posted in the coming weeks. Since the last Guards Star we are announcing a change in date for the Fall Reunion activities.
The Canada Army Run has firmed up their 2022 date, and it will occur on Sunday, September 18th next year, leaving the weekend of 23- 25 September available for our activities. It was agreed holding our event a week earlier would be better all around, and so the Reunion Weekend will now be Friday, September 23rd – Sunday, September 25th, 2022. In addition, it is now confirmed that the Guards’ Homecoming Gala Ball will be held in the magnificent Ballroom of the Chateau Laurier Hotel on Saturday, September 24th, 2022! We will be partnering with both the Lord Elgin and the Chateau Laurier Hotels to provide hotel rooms at a discounted rate. A link will be provided f
