Dear Friends of the Juno Beach Centre
(Lire en français ci-dessous)

 

A new battle for Juno Beach is underway.

There is no better place to honour the courage of the Canadians who served in the Second World War than the Juno Beach Centre (JBC). Yet the museum is now facing its greatest threat in nearly 20 years of existence.

Foncim, a French property developer, plans to erect a 70-unit condominium development on Juno Beach, just east of and between the museum and the Seulles River. The development is called Domaine des Dunes.

We are not generally opposed to projects like these on former battlegrounds; the French deserve to enjoy the freedoms our veterans’ sacrifice brought them. However, the Dunes project plans to use the JBC’s private road for access to the building site by construction vehicles and workers. We have great concern for the impact that this will have on the Juno Beach Centre.

… Read our full statement …

Reporting out of France has already led a small but growing group of Canadians to organize Save Juno Beach. We thank them for their support and hope that you will join this citizens’ campaign. Thank you to our donors and supporters who have already reached out to offer support.

We are rapidly approaching a point of no return. This is an existential threat to the Juno Beach Centre and the Canadian memorial presence in Normandy. Without your support, the legacy that our veterans built for future generations on Juno Beach may disappear entirely.

To join fellow Canadians in the fight to “Save Juno Beach”, please go to https://www.savejunobeach.ca.

Details are not known at this time, when there are they will be posted.

On behalf of the Zone D5 we send our condolences to the McLean family

The Air Cadets are hoping to get the Legion’s help in spreading the word about our Lottery Ticket Book Fundraiser. Every year, the squadron participates in selling Lottery Ticket Books to raise funds for cadet programming and Aviation career training.

As a result of the pandemic, this year’s fundraiser is being held directly online.

1 ticket is $10.00 and the draw is being held on April 30, 2021, at 10:00 am EST.

The Prizes are as follows:


Early Bird Prize: $5000 (If your ticket is purchased by April 1, 10:00 am)
Cash Prizes: 1 x $20 000, 2 x $10 000, 4 x 5000, 5 x $1000

More information about the prizes, the draw, and the rules for purchasing lottery tickets can be found at www.aircadetlottery.com

To purchase a ticket:

Through the Air Cadet Lottery Ticket website listed above.

The Legion member would then need to select alphabetically their squadron location/number from a drop down list. Air Cadet League of Canada is the default if you don’t select a squadron, meaning the local squadron wouldn’t get its share. 

The Air Cadets appreciate the Legion’s support by passing on this information to other members and if possible, by purchasing a ticket to help out the Squadrons of your local Branch.   

We appreciate your continued support during these times!

Thank you and have a great day!
