Peace Tower flag for ANAVETS

Strong winds helped lift a large Canadian flag Thursday, raised on a flagpole beside ANAVETS Unit No. 290. At the unveiling, from left, are RCMP Const. Carla Peters, ANAVETS first vice-president Randy Williams, MP Cathy McLeod, ANAVETS president Gordon Marsh, and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird. The MP and minister delivered on an ANAVETS request for a Peace Tower flag (previously flown at the Peace Tower in Ottawa), which will fly along the Thompson River bank on the patio of the ANAVETS clubhouse on Tranquille Road.
