Chieftan O the Games
2019 marks the 75th anniversary of
The Battle of Normandy
in which Canada suffered a great loss of life.
We therefore felt it only fitting that we give this honour to
Lt Col Colin Todd
The Nova Scotia Highlanders
Chief Bob Gloade (2017/18 Chieftan-left) receiving a Plaque from Lt Col Colin Todd (right) at the 2018 games to commemorate the contribution of the Mi'kmaq in the Canadian Armed Forces.
We were sad to hear of the passing of Allison MacLeod when was one of our amazing volunteers with the Highland Dancers. She will be greatly missed
Our thoughts are with Allison's family.
