When: September 29, 2018, from 10 am – 3 pm. Registration closes at 2 pm. Note: This is a staggered event. THERE IS NO SET TIME FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL RUN TO BEGIN.
Where: Coaches Corner, Morinville, Alberta (9517 100 St, Morinville, AB T8R 1R2)
Why: The Rotary Club of Morinville is raising money for the LAV III Monument to be placed at the Morinville Recreation Centre. Cognizant of the Morinville community’s strong ties to the Canadian Forces and a large number of local community members being active or retired members of the Canadian Forces, this is a project that our Rotarians strongly believe in.
Through the avenue of Community Service, we believe this project will enhance our community, particularly in providing relevant insight and education in our modern day military men and women. Today, most military monuments in Canada are more than seventy years old and are not relevant to younger generations. We aim to provide a tool to educate the younger generations of the Afghanistan conflict that Canadian Soldiers have endured, those who are their neighbors and also call the Morinville area home.
