February 20 BA5 at the Elizabeth Street Pumphouse

Our first “BA5” of 2019 was a great success, with many folks braving the forecasted freezing rain to join us at the Elizabeth Street Pumphouse. We had some delicious refreshments, delivered by member 50 Point Market, and everyone took full advantage of the opportunity to network, make new contacts, and start productive conversations with fellow attendees. We welcomed a number of guests and new members, which made for an interesting and exciting evening for all.  The highlight of the BA5 was certainly the presentation from Rom DiEgidio, the Staff Sergeant from the Niagara Regional Police Service’s local 8 District. Rom gave an engaging talk, including highlights and anecdotes from his history with the NRP, insights on the challenges and rewards of working in local law enforcement, and teasers on some of the initiatives coming down the pipeline. All in all, an enjoyable, informative, connected evening for all! Thanks to members, new members, and guests for joining us!

Special thanks to member Village Studio for capturing some moments from the evening for us!

A very warm welcome to the new members in attendance: Foster Controls, GoodLife Fitness, Grimsby Toastmasters, NEORA, and Robbinex.

Remembrance Day – 100 Years Later

November 11, 2018 will mark 100 years since the signing of the armistice that officially ended World War One.

Join Veterans Affairs, Royal Canadian Legions, and Military and Cadet Units across the country in marking the “Bells of Peace” this year, and paying tribute to all Canadians who served and experienced the horrors of war.

An official parade ceremony begins at approximately 10:40 AM at the Grimsby Cenotaph (Grimsby Public Museum), after which the Cadets of 62 Grimsby Phantom Squadron will march along Main St E to Queen’s Lawn Cemetery. There a Minor Service will be held, while Cadets place Canadian Flags on the graves of the WWI fallen.

The general public is invited to attend.

Bells of Peace: in recognition of the signing of the armistice, the Cadets will re-muster in front of the Grimsby Museum at approximately 4:00 PM, place an honour guard, and, at sunset (approximately 4:56 PM), ring the town bell. The ringing will coincide with the ringing of church bells across town for 100 chimes.

The public is invited to attend any and all aspects of the Bells of Peace services on November 11. We encourage all citizens to join in remembrance to honour the sacrifices of the men and women who fought, and continue to fight, for our freedoms.
