Edmonton’s 1st Red Fridays Rally




Edmonton, AB. – Married to the Canadian Forces, and Edmonton Salutes, supported by ATCO Group, are pleased to invite you to take part in Edmonton’s first ever Red Fridays Rally on November 3, 2006 at Sir Winston Churchill Square. The rally will run from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.

Included in the day’s events will be speeches by Colonel Jon Vance, Commander, 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group, Edmonton Salutes Co-Chair Councillor, Ed Gibbons and Master Corporal Paul Franklin, who recently suffered the loss of his legs during a tour in Afghanistan. As well, Shawn Hlookoff, a British Columbia musician, will be in Edmonton to perform his “Soldier” tribute song and the Guthrie School Choir will be singing Oh Canada.

The rally will include face painting, the sale of Red Fridays and Yellow Ribbon products and much more. All proceeds from the sale of Red Fridays and Yellow Ribbons products will go to support the Edmonton Military Family Resource Centre.

The primary goal of this rally is to show support to our military. It is not to highlight any particular group, political party, or mission. More so, it is a chance for Edmonton to show its appreciation to our troops and an opportunity for our citizens to say thank you.

For more information, please contact Married to the Canadian Forces Public Affairs Representative, Rachel Lambert, at 780-973-3133 or by e-mail at Rachel@marriedtothecanadianforces.com.
