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.
