Many people were getting "fancied up" on Friday evening, for a ball! The RCMP Regimental Ball in Carman....It's not often you hear about a ball in Southern Manitoba, but my parents were attending, and said it was a wonderful evening....Canada's RCMP are a part of our history going right back to the arrival of the North West Mounted Police at Fort Dufferin north of Emerson in the latter part of the 19th century.....
Al Friesen also attended, and spoke with The Commanding Officer of the D Division of RCMP Manitoba -- Bill Robinson...Bill was the guest speaker, and spoke with pride about being a member of Canada's elite law enforcement agency.. AUDIO
Thank you Bill. The Royal Canadian Air Force Band provided the entertainment, noting that "This is not a performance....so please feel free to dance!" Sounds like a fun evening.
