Canadian “Silent Walk” to Mark Dutch Liberation

The Friends of Veterans Canada is holding a “Silent Walk” on May 4th, 2011, which starts at 2 pm with a walk around Victoria Park in London, ON and is open to anyone.

We will be marking the sacrifice of Canadian soldiers made in the Netherlands 66 years ago, one day before V-E Day.

There will be a similar “Silent Walk” in the Dutch city of Nijkerk, Holland to honour the 66th anniversary of that country’s liberation on May 5, 1945.

Our “Silent Walk” will start on May 4, 2011 with the walk at 2:00 pm at the cenotaph in Victoria Park and continues around the park and ends back at the cenotaph with two minutes of silence. The Wreath will be laid during the ceremony.

This event is helping to mark our government’s decision to set May aside as Dutch Heritage Month.

Friends of Veterans Canada is a registered charity that records veterans’ stories as to save them in the Veterans Video Library so future generations of Canadians will have our veterans’ stories, for history’s sake.

After the ceremony, we will be holding a press conference about the recent developments between an unlicensed raffle at the 2007 Bike Show and Randy Young with the FOVC.

We have a saying: “Let those who come after not let their names be forgotten”.
