After a two-year hiatus, the Board of the Sir Winston Churchill Society is pleased to announce that the Annual Memorial Banquet will take place on June 21st at the University Club (formerly named the Faculty Club at the University of Alberta). Cocktails begin at 6:00 PM with the Banquet seated at 6:40. As is our tradition, guests will wear black tie, mess kit or evening attire.
We are pleased to announce our speaker this year is General (Retired) Paul Wynnyk, CMM, MSM, CD., currently Deputy Minister of Health. Over the course of his military career, General Wynnyk commanded troops on multiple occasions, including Canadian Forces Intelligence Command from 2014 to 2016, and the Canadian Army from 2016 to 2018. As Commander of the Canadian Army his various postings saw him involved in many aspects of Canada’s mission in the Ukraine in the wake of Russia’s annexation of the Crimea in 2014. The banquet promises to be a stimulating evening that will offer a unique perspective on the present conflict.
It is our pleasure to announce that Her Honour, the Lieutenant Governor Salma Lakhani, AOE, BSc, LLD (hon), has graciously agreed to attend the evening.
