Christmas Greetings from Van Arty Assoc President Leon Jensen
Merry Christmas to all Association members as well as current and former serving members of the 15th Field Artillery Regiment, RCA and their friends and families. Wishing you all the best for the New Year!
In 2016 we will continue to work on building our membership, getting the 25pdr ready for ‘action’ and organizing, training and equipping a gun detachment so we can deploy the gun for future events. We will also continue work on the Yearbook project, which is off to a good start. We are now formalizing our association with the RCAA and all Ordinary members will become members of that organization starting in 2016.
Bring a former member to lunch on 20 January and we'll see if we can track down some more memories for our Regimental Yearbooks!

Christmas Greetings from RUSI Vancouver President Cam Cathcart
As we approach the end of the year I extend seasonal greetings to members of the Royal United Services Institute Vancouver and wish you all a healthy and prosperous new year. During the past year we collaborated on a major pre-election panel on Foreign and Defence Policy and approved a new RUSI badge, to be unveiled early in the new year.
The coming year promises to be an exciting one as RUSI Vancouver hosts the prestigious Strategic Studies Conference at the Main Branch of the Vancouver Public Library on April 8 and 9.
The conference, together with the restoration of the Burrard Bridge Memorial Braziers, will be the primary initiatives to be undertaken by RUSI Vancouver in 2016.

A Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy New Year!
