Attention:  Branch President / Secretary

On behalf of Dominion Command, I am forwarding you the following information from Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC).
As Dominion’s next all Branch email will not go out until mid-May, this information will not be included.

Veterans Affairs Canada has created a variety of digital commemorative initiatives and activities so that Canadians can remember the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands and V-E Day.

They are promoting learning materials and other creative ways that parents and can teach to their children at home about the Liberation of the Netherlands using our initiative.

They are also launching a Virtual Postcard campaign asking parents, children and youth to pick a “postcard” (from a bank of images) and provide their own comments to Veterans. The “postcards” will be displayed in a gallery on IG. They will create a book full of the “postcards” that will be given to Veterans at a later date.

Their newest initiative will be a Faces of Freedom podcast series featuring Veterans and family members from the Liberation. They will be releasing 6 podcasts and online articles starting this weekend and up to May 8. There are now new learning materials, new images and social shareables, and articles and stories on their webpage. They will also have a series of videos and historical posts on social media, as well as some planned “take overs” (trivia, tulips, thank you) during the period of 01-09 May.

Below is the link for your participation from the safety of your own home.
