Registration is now open for 2017 Metz Reunion

Spring, 2017.
Five decades since we lowered our new Maple Leaf flag at the Chateau for the last time.

A full century since our grandfathers walked up the hill into the machine guns at Vimy Ridge.

At a shining monument on a little hill that remains forever part of Canada, the nation will celebrate. Thousands will attend.

The luckiest among us will be there, to observe, to take part, to remember.

Short days later, we’ll meet again, in our beloved Metz to share and re-share our memories of a time like no other. We invite all who were a part of that experience to join us, for dinners and tours and explorations, from April 11th to 13th, 2017. Registration and Program Details can be found on the 2017 Reunion Home Page.

The Cold War garrison of our youth has recovered to its proper stature as a glittering and cosmopolitan city of the world, boasting over three thousand years of civilization and culture. If you haven’t been back, you’ll be amazed. If you have …it’s even better. Have a look, …here.

referred accommodation will be limited, and preparations for tours will require at least preliminary numbers to establish costs and reserve transport, so we strongly advise… if you’re planning to come, we’d love to hear from you ASAP!

Selected optIons for a Vimy tour, and for a variety of exciting group events taking place before and after the official reunion, in Metz and as far away as Paris and Lisbon, are outlined here.

Once again, if you’re interested, please let us know as soon as you can either by filling out our Registration Form or, if you’re not sure, filling out our Survey Form.
