Thank Our Troops Evening – The Military Museums
Kin Canada is proud to announce that the Portraits of Honour mural will soon be arriving in Calgary. The Portraits of Honour mural is touring the country to honour our fallen soldiers, and to raise money for the Portraits of Honour Fund. Portraits of Honour is dedicated to providing financial support that will help. This tour will provide Canadians from coast to coast with an opportunity to honour and celebrate our Canadian soldiers, pay respect to those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice and to recognize the challenges that face those who will return home with lasting physical or emotional injuries.
We are very happy to extend an invitation to our “Thank Our Troops” evening at the Military Museums in Calgary on Monday September 19th. This special evening is meant as a “Thank You” to the men and women in our many branches of the Canadian Armed Forces and Veterans. It is a casual “come and go” event to allow you to see this incredible mural, view the museums, and spend some time with friends. The creator of this mural, and a CAV member, Mr. Dave Sopha will be on hand to enjoy the evening with you.
The Military Museums have been a great support in this event by extending their 5:00 pm closing time to 8:00 pm on the 19th. The admission charge to view this fantastic facility has also been waived for this special event. There will hamburgers and drinks available and proceeds will be donated to the Portraits of Honour fund.

In addition to the Thank Our Troops evening, there will be a public display on Stephens Avenue Mall on the morning of the 19th and a Gala Fundraising Dinner at Heritage Park, featuring General Rick Hillier ret. as the guest speaker, on the evening of Tuesday Sept 20th. Information on all our plans for the Calgary visit are available at our website www.portraitsofhonourcalgary.ca
