Dear Ms. Latner:

Further to our telephone conversation, I am pleased to inform you that you have been awarded the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers in recognition of your contributions to your community. Administered by the Office of the Governor General, this medal is part of the Canadian Honours System and celebrates exceptional volunteer achievements in a wide range of fields.

Here is your citation:

Since joining the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 551 in 1998, Sheila Latner has served as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd vice-president, and currently serves as president. Over the years she has organized numerous successful events, such as the annual fundraising golf tournament, and the Remember Everyone Deployed initiative, which asks civilians to wear red to remember their servicemen and servicewomen.

WDHS History Museum – Open

The history museum ran by Mr. Flosman at Waterdown District High School will be open Monday through Friday this week. Please join us during Period 3 and 4 (10:50am – 1:15pm).

The Waterdown Museum of History is opening its doors for another year Nov. 11 with a slate of new featured exhibits — including one highlighting the 30th anniversary of the end of the Cold War. The museum, which is curated by students in the school’s Grade 11 genocide and crimes against humanity class, will also include new virtual reality googles — direct from the Anne Frank House in Amsterda

  “The Cold War is the big thing, the big draw,” he said, adding the exhibit will focus on Waterdown’s Bob Thomas. “It’s really paying homage to a great man who has had such an amazing life.”  “We are looking at Bob Thomas’ story, but also 30 years since the end of the Cold War, which is Nov. 9.”  Bob Thomas, who was born in Montreal, but now lives in Waterdown with his wife Valerie, served in the Canadian Army for eight years from 1960 to 1968. He was deployed in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes, and in 1964 completed a tour of duty with the United Nations Forces in Cyprus. The following year he returned to the Middle East, serving with the United Nations Emergency Force in Camp Rafah, Egypt, Gaza, Palestine and detached duty in Beirut, Lebanon.

  Book of Remembrance 

  We now have a Book or Remembrance on display inour lobby.  Also, please see the photo of our Veteran’s Board.  Each week, I will feature a member of our community who made the supreme sacrifice in the service of our country.  We had one causality from the Boer War and a number from WW I and WWII.  We are very grateful to the Flamborough Archives for sharing this information with us.  Over the years, a very dedicated group of volunteers from Archives have been researching and putting together the story of these local heroes.  The book is a work in progress and I have put my contact information near the book in case someone has additional material to add to our files.  Presently, we have the Boer War and WW 1 covered.  Shortly, we will be adding the information about our WW II casualties.
