HAPPY  BIRTHDAY CANADA!
It all started there – the 1864 Quebec Conference and Charlottetown Conferenced laid out the framework for uniting British colonies in North America into a federation. They had been adopted by the majority of the provinces of Canada and became the basis of the London Conference in 1864 which led to the formation of the Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867, which became an official birthday of Canada as we all know.

The Annual Pilgrimage will begin at 12:00 p.m. on June 11 at the St. Vincent de Paul, with a military inspection of the veterans’ organizations. Then a Catholic Mass will be celebrated at the cemetery chapel. Following the Mass, a parade will proceed to the Cenotaph,  where wreaths are to be laid honoring those Polish and Canadian volunteers of General Haller’s Blue Army who gave their lives in WWI.

All the members of the parade will gather at 11:30am. The event is open to public, everyone is welcome to attend to commemorate the centenary of ultimate sacrifice of General Haller’s Blue Army Soldiers and Recruits.
