The Royal Canadian Legion High River Branch 71 hosted a Veterans Luncheon, put on through the area poppy fund, on May 5. Veterans and their spouses or caregivers gathered for a turkey dinner to honour the veterans, including RCMP members, of High River and the surrounding area.
The event included speakers, song performances and a presentation from three Grade 12 Highwood High School students – Foster Laycraft, Gio Wright and Jared Kennett.
The three students shared photos and stories from a recent school trip to France, which included a visit to Vimy Ridge and other places involving Canadian military history. Photographed are the veterans who attended the luncheon.
