On May 18th, an enthusiastic group of members in period dress were
in Regina to greet Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Our view was
somewhat hampered as it began to rain and a sea of umbrellas appeared.
Although we got thoroughly soaked everyone enjoyed the day.
It was our privilege to host the annual UELAC conference and unveil
the cairn on the Legislative grounds in early June. On June 19th, Branch
members met at Houston Pizza for a noon luncheon meeting. Following our
meeting we adjourned to the cairn site. Once again a number of members
were in period dress and, as people gathered, we passed out balloons and
programs. The flags were placed beside the cairn. Logan Bjarnason UE
welcomed everyone and led them in the singing of the Royal Anthem.
Gerald Adair UE, newly appointed Prairie Regional VP, brought greeting
on behalf of Dominion Council. Lois Griffin UE read a poem written by
Elizabeth Richardson UE entitled "Loyal We Stand." Logan
Bjarnason UE then spoke to the group, his topic being
"Milestones--A Loyalist Tradition." The group then joined in
the singing of our National Anthem and the program ended with the
retiring of the colours.
