MP Chris Warkentin

On behalf of ANAVETS and 3rd CAV want to thank those who came out to our Afghanistan Monument Project Parade & Poker Run.

While our numbers were small for the poker run, 19 participants, we had a wonderful day and Mother Nature even cooperated.

Because of you and our sponsors and supporters we raised $1,000 and brought attention to the Afghanistan Monument Project in Veterans Park.

Congratulations to Chris Racette who won the $250 cash prize and condolences to Alan Patchett who won the worst hand prize.

MLA Wayne Drysdale

While being spearheaded by myself as a member of C.A.V., beautifying Veterans Park and building this monument has become a very important mission of the Army, Navy, Air Force Veterans Branch #389. Their commitment to our veterans and the memories of those who are fallen is second to none.
