1. President’s Opening Remarks
a) Welcome everyone and asked Adam to give us a little briefing on himself. He has recently transferred to our unit from Pursuit to Mons Unit, 3 CAV Alberta.

ii) Review of last month’s events/rides:
- July 13- Fri - Port Dover, ON - did anyone go this year?
- July 28th- Sat -08:30 hrs Leave the Streets Behind Ride, Awesome ride attended by Big Al, Kathy and Trevor – only got a little wet between Finch and Chesterville but dried out riding from Chesterville to Kempville. There were only about 25 riders with a few passengers. A little disappointing for such a great cause. Started at the Cornwall Legion with stops at the following Legions: Lancaster, Alexander, Chesterville, Kempville, Iroquois, and ended at the Morrisburg Legion. Every Legion made a donation to the Leave the Streets Behind Fund. Funds raise between these funds, rider/passenger registration and the 50/50 just over $16,000 was raise. Well done Sicily.
