Honouring History & Building Ties For The Future: Military & Business Leaders
Garrison Petawawa and the Valley’s business community came together yesterday to mark the anniversary of the end of the First World War, and to keep building ties for the future.
A town crier and historic displays re-enacted the moment the armistice was announced in the streets of Pembroke in 1918.
And then, at the annual Garrison Business Luncheon, Commander Colonel Louis Lapointe shared a message about strengthening ties between military and civilian life.
“We’re the largest employer in the Valley from Ottawa to North Bay, so we can create that momentum, but we've really got to greatly engage the business community", Lapointe told Star 96.7 News.
"So it’s fantastic to have them around, we have about 150 people here today. I think we’re making great progress.”
Lapointe offered business leaders tips on finding jobs, contracts and business with the military community .. partnerships that he says strengthen the community as a whole.
