    Seasons Greetings from the Base Commander....
    Our last Community Guide was a great success and I want to thank everyone that has worked so hard
    to make this latest one a reality.

    With Christmas just around the corner and the consequent New Year’s Resolutions shortly after that, it’s
    the perfect time to think about what activities you and your family might like to get involved with as we
    get ready for 2011. To make it even easier for you to get involved I am happy to report that we’ve got
    some new clubs and activities that have developed since our
    last report. Take the time to look at all the services which this
    Garrison offers you in the way of sporting, leisure and family
    oriented activities.

    The Edmonton Capital Region remains the best place to
    soldier in Canada, and I am pleased that we can continue
    offering you these services within our community.

    Best wishes for the upcoming Christmas Season and from our
    family to yours we wish you a safe and prosperous 2011.

    Lieutenant Colonel Tom Bradley
