I received this in my inbox today and strongly felt the need to share. In times of tragedy we can feel so helpless. Sometimes doing something as simple as sending a card can be such a blessing. So thankful for the opportunity to show support in such a beautiful way.
Many of you will be aware of the terrible tragedy that happened in Moncton last week where three RCMP officers were killed, and two others wounded. Tara Macfarlane, one of our sister demonstrators who works with the RCMP in BC, has asked if we could make cards and send them to the families of these officers.
We are often unaware of the huge contribution the RCMP make to ensure our safety and security. Unfortunately, from time to time, some of these protectors make the ultimate sacrifice for us. We have an opportunity to show our appreciation, and to help the families of these officers understand how thankful we are.
Will you take part? Perhaps you can also involve your friends and customers in this effort?
The officers who lost their lives tragically that day are:
Cst Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, 45
Cst David Joseph Ross, 32
Cst Douglas James Larche, 40
Cst Éric Stéphane J. Dubois and Cst Marie Darlene Goguen are both recovering.
Your cards may be sent to;
Codiac Regional Detachment
P.O. Box 1045
