ANNUAL GARRISON BUSINESS LUNCHEON MARKS ANNIVERSARY OF PASSCHENDAELE 11/10/2017 8:34:24 AM
Today (Nov 10) marks the end of the battle of Passchendaele. That's why it was the focus during yesterday's annual Garrison Petawawa Business Luncheon. Colonel Louis LaPointe says the Canadians' role in the Belgian battle was a large one.
LaPointe spoke to the importance of bringing business owners on base and the importance of strengthening the military's bond with the community. The luncheon was a war-style stew served out of canteen cups, just like how soldiers would've eaten in the trenches.
