VETS Canada is very grateful to the Sydney Garrison which is comprised of the Cape Breton Highlanders, 36 Combat Engineer Regiment, 36 Service Battalion, 35 Medical Company, and 5 Squadron of the 36 Signal Regiment (Glace Bay).  On Saturday, 07 November 2015, Sydney Garrison held their 28th annual Sydney Garrison Lieutenant Governor’s Military Ball and this year, for the first time, guests were asked to make a donation to a selected organization.  VETS Canada is honoured to have been chosen as the recipient organization.  VETS Canada co-founders, Jim and Debbie Lowther, were thrilled to attend the ball and accept the donation which totalled $3075. Special thanks to Sydney Garrison Commanding Officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Russell Gallant and his lovely wife, Marlene, for being very gracious hosts and to Major Jason Doyle who organized the event.
