Welcome

Well here we go again…..another shutdown for 4 weeks. With the amount of spread of the new Covid variants, it is for the greater good.
 
April 9th is Vimy Ridge Day.  

Vimy Ridge was a particularly important tactical operation of WW1. Its capture by the Canadian Army was essential to the advances by the British Third Army and of exceptional importance to checking the German attacks in the area in 1918.

 

 
Unfortunately we cannot gather to honour those that served and lost their lives during this important operation but let us take a moment on Friday, April 9th, to Remember Them.
 
The Association is always open to receive new members. Please visit our Membership page for further details and if you would like to join our wonderful Association, please reach out to our Membership Manager, Larry Lau, at markhamveterans@rogers.com.  
 
With the amount of vaccines that Canada is now receiving each week, hopefully we will be able to ramp up the number of people that can get vaccinated each day and with the change in strategy will help us get on top of this pandemic and we can return to some form of normalcy. I encourage everyone to get vaccinated, continue to follow and adhere to the guidelines from the health officials so we can get to the “new” normal as soon as possible.
 
The MDVA will continue to follow all Provincial regulations and the website will be updated accordingly so please visit the site often to get the latest update.  
 
It looks like Spring is starting early so take time to go outside and enjoy the warm weather and let us look forward to when we can gather again.
 
Stay safe and stay healthy

Markham District Veterans’ Association

Located in downtown Markham, we have often been called the ‘best kept secret’ in town.

You will be helping make friends that last for a lifetime.

Until recently, membership was only available for Veterans, immediate family and close friends.

Today, membership is open to all who subscribe to the same values as the Veterans, and are willing to further the aims and objectives of the Markham District Veterans Association.

We invite, and encourage you to drop in, say hello, and get involved with your local Veterans Association in the City of Markham.
