Operation REASSURANCE

 

Text:

  • ATF Romania: ATF members completed the charity project and presented the key to the grandmother and her granddaughter on August 17, 2014.
  • Present during the key hand-over were representatives from Blythswood, the partner charity organization, and the mayor’s office.
  • The project was made possible by the personal motivation of ATF members, the generosity of the Boomer’s Legacy Foundation, the leadership of Blythswood Romania (charity), and the support of the Floresti Mayor’s Office and our hosts the Romanian Air Force.
  • The project made a big difference in the life of the beneficiary and has helped bring the ATF closer to the local community.

A Big Boomer’s Legacy Thank You to Al Watson at Duncan Thrifty’s

Maureen Eykelenboom

Without the ongoing annual support of people like Al from Thrifty’s in Duncan we  would not be able to offer our riders half the luxuries that have become synonymous with our BC Ride. To Al and his team, and everyone else who puts in time and effort and other resources, our deepest thanks for helping us help our soldiers help others.

A Big Boomer’s Legacy Thank You to Karl Ulrich of Oak Bay Bicycles

Maureen Eykelenboom

Karl and his team keep our riders on the road, year after year. It is hard to imagine a Boomer’s Legacy British Columbia bicycle ride without having Oak Bay Bicycles ready to take care of all the mechanical details, from replacing shoe clip screws to on-the-spot tire repairs. The ongoing annual support of people like Karl from Oak Bay Bicycles allows us to offer our riders the luxuries that have become synonymous with our Boomer’s Legacy British Columbia Ride.

To Karl and his team, and everyone else who puts in time and effort and other resources, our deepest thanks for helping us help our soldiers help others.

BL-Quote

We just finished another amazing Boomer’s Legacy Bike Ride on Vancouver Island.

So many fantastic people make up “Boomer’s Team. The volunteers, the cyclists the RCMP, CAV members, the staff at the Thrifty Foods, the Legion members, the donors and many more. This year’s ride was even better than last year, the camaraderie, the emotional remembrance ceremony where all fallen soldiers are remembered was so heartfelt and meaningful.

So true, we don’t get over the loss of our loved one, but we do learn to live again. The people in my life now are the ones that lift me up, that help me to stand taller and that makes me smile.

I am grateful to you all.
