Letters: Flag dip for power squadron

75th anniversary of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron

Sooke is the final stop for Canadian Power and Sail Squadron’s 75th Anniversary flag that has travelled across Western Canada to commemorate the founding of CPS in Canada.

You are invited to help us celebrate when the flag is dipped into the Pacific Ocean waters at Whiffin Spit on Saturday, October 12, at 3 p.m. The flag has visited various squadrons since leaving Toronto earlier this year, and will be joined by a similar flag that went east to Newfoundland on October 26 in Toronto, during the Annual General Meeting.

Sooke Squadron has promoted safe boating in our area through classroom training, pleasure boat safety checks and being there to answer questions re training and boating safety issues for over 20 years.

We welcome you to see this unique event, showing Sooke’s presence in celebrating this event.

More information is available on the National Website at http://www.cps-ecp.ca, and follow the CPS Flag Relay links.

Local contacts are the CPS Vancouver Island South District Commander, Mrs. Sharon Lassey, at 250-642-6504 or slassey@shaw.ca, or from Barry Gifford, Sooke Squadron Commander, at 250-661-1863, or pro509321@yahoo.ca. We hope to see you there.
