mcmordie.jpgIt was a special evening in North Vancouver last weekend as friends, family and VIP members of the community were invited to attend an informal reception to recognize the upcoming 2011 Centennial Anniversary of 6 Engineer Squadron. Taking place at the J.P. Fell Armoury, guests had a chance to tour the 6 Engineer Squadron museum, view the Centennial Coin and ceremonial 1911 Cap Badge and hear a special presentation of the 100 year history. A great night to meet with former and current members, the evening ended with a fantastic performance by the J.P. Fell Pipe Band. The official March Past Parade and Banquet will be held at the J.P. Fell Armoury on May 7, 2011. Stay tuned.

01 – Major Ward Trythall, seen here with wife Iska Scholl, are both looking forward to the big event on May 7th when a full day and night of activities will help mark the 100th year.

02 – Looking forward to seeing more of 2Lt Chris Beneteau, left, public affairs member of the 100th Anniversary Organizing Committee and drum major extraordinaire Doug Drysdale at the big May 7th celebration.

03 – Oh how we ladies love a man in uniform. Corporals Michael Kenacan, left, and Andy Chow graciously welcome VIPs and guests at the entrance.

04 – There’s a lot of work going into the centennial book now being prepared for the big event by historian/author Vince Larocque. His brief history presentation on this night is full of wonderful yet bittersweet memories.

05 – Trish and Allan McMordie, both accomplished pipers in the J.P. Fell Pipe Band, are proof positive that “music [is] the food of love” (Shakespeare). Play on!

06 – Serving together back in the years 1971-77, Gonzalo Benitez, left, now a VP at North Vancouver’s Neptune Terminals and Lieutenant-Colonel J.R. (Jim) Happer get a chance to catch up on old times.

07 – A rousing round of “Scotland the Brave” and more from the J.P. Fell Pipe Band gets guests tapping their feet. Look for them next at the annual Robert Burns Supper at the end of this month.
