AFTER ACTION
Combined Final Quarter & Year Ending Report.
October - December 2007:

A busy quarter this last quarter of 2007, a time that has seen the Troop active in a number of areas with 3 particular highlights to mention.

Firstly.......On Remembrance day our Troop attended the Remembrance Day Service held in the Royal Canadian Legion Hall at which time we laid a wreath, photographs provided show our members taking part in that service.

Secondly......On 25th November we attended St. Marks Anglican Church for the dedication of our Standard.  St. Marks was founded here in Outlook in 1909 and is one of the first churches, if not the first in the town, although the original building was sold and the "new" church built some years after 1909. Photographs again provided show us during this ceremony with the Reverend Dan Fournier (our latest member) officiating.

Thirdly.....Our November meeting saw various members of the Troop receiving Service Awards provided by our Hon. Commissioner in Chief, HRH Prince Leonard for dedicated service to the Unit. Once again some photos provided record this proud event and the members to receive awards this year were:.....
