Cambridge Armoury Open House a Success!

October 28, 2006
The Open House held at the Cambridge Armoury was a success, seeing close to 500 people come through the door. History spoke from the walls within the square.

Our group, The Families of Canadian Soldiers in Afghanistan, set up a table to promote the Wear Red on Fridays campaign.. but especially to rally support for our troops serving overseas. A 36 foot banner grew full with well wishes, pictures and signatures from many of the visitors. Many red Support our Troops tshirts left the armoury as people purchased and ordered them (after we ran out of stock that day)

My heart was overwhelmed when veterans adorning their many medals of bravery and previous missions stopped by to inscribe their well wishes to the soldiers on their mission.

Jeff Rainey and Cpl Ryan Pagnacco are seen here conveying their wishes to the soldiers and commrades.

Military Moms display the banner that will be sent to our soldiers in Afghanistan.

Thank you to Major Charlie Fitton, Honourary Colonel, Terry Wilder, and Honourary Lt. Colonel, Owen Lackenbauerfor allowing us to maintain our mission of Support.

Thank you Cambridge, Brant County and Waterloo Region for showing your support.
