The year 2020 has come and gone and it has been a very difficult year. I certainly hope 2021 will be much better.  The CAVUNP Membership is based on the calendar year which means our 2021 dues are payable now. We currently have 75 members in the Colonel John Gardam Chapter and 29 members have paid their 2021 dues already. The yearly dues remain at $25.00 per year. You may pay for more than one year if you wish. A cheque or money order with the membership application made out to “Colonel John Gardam Chapter” may be sent to:


Colonel John Gardam Chapter

If any of your personal information has changed or if you’ve recently obtained additional information, please let me know. We need to keep our database current in order to effectively communicate with our chapter members. I am referring to addresses (summer and/or winter), phone numbers (home and/or work),
email adress, fax numbers, cellular phone numbers, pager numbers and any other info you feel may be important for us to maintain contact with you.

Our activities during 2020 were greatly reduced although our chapter did participate in a scaled down version of our annual Peacekeepers Day Parade as well as the Remembrance Day Parade. We’ve had to temporarily cancel our monthly meetings as well as our monthly breakfasts. Although our monthly meetings have recently resumed using the Zoom technology via the internet.

I certainly hope that the pandemic fades away and we can get together once in a while in the not-too-distant future. I always enjoy spending time with our members during our chapter activities. Thank You to our members who have paid their 2021 dues. For those that haven’t I hope to hear from you soon.
