Hope your holidays have been festive and safe.
After an absence of two years, because of COVID-19, the Warrant Officers and Sergeants New Year's Breakfast was re-started last year and we're hoping to have one this New Year's morning! The breakfast has been ongoing and now in its seventh decade starting in the early 1960s - a history is attached. This year, we are happy to welcome and include two new members to this custom - Sergeant Anders Grasdal and Sergeant Jason Han.
A formal invitation for the Breakfast and Levee is attached. Along with serving members and associates, spouses and partners are most welcome to attend.
The Breakfast is at 0800 hours for 0830 hours at Frankie's Italian Kitchen and Bar located at 765 Beatty Street in Vancouver. Frankie is not a relative of mine. The dress is DEU with ribbons and shoes and although challenging to get up on this holiday, I would encourage every member to attend at least one breakfast in their career. The Levee is back in the Warrant Officers and Sergeants' Mess at 1030 hours. Please pass this on to anyone I may have missed.
Please find below the photograph from last year's Breakfast with all those who attended.
Have a safe, healthy and happy NEW YEAR
