The second annual Breakfast on the Bridge took place during sunrise on June 20, 2015. This year, the rain stayed away and guests were treated to a spectacular morning, full of sun, laughter, exceptional food and entertainment and honoured guests from both the Canadian and Dutch army.
This year’s keynote speaker was Lieutenant General Mart de Kruif, Commander of the Royal Netherlands Army. His speech moved many of those in attendance, as it spoke to the role the Canadian Armed Forces played in the Liberation of Holland 70 years ago, the anniversary of which was the theme of this year’s Breakfast.
This year’s event raised $168,000, and proceeds from the Breakfast will once again go towards a mental health and wellbeing retreat for our CAF families, as well as other MFRC coalitions and mental wellbeing initiatives. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more photos, and the July edition of the HOMEFRONT for more pictures and story on this incredible event. Be sure to mark your calendars for the 2016 event, set to take place on Saturday, June 25.
