A Festive December
By Col Richard Goodyear, Commandant CFSU(O)
This is our last edition before the Holidays and CWO Dubuc and I wish to end the year on a merry and healthy note. Speaking of which, I invite everyone to visit the Healthy Living section and download PSP Ottawa Health Promotion’s Healthy Holiday Bingo. It’s a fun and motivating resource to help you enjoy the holidays while staying healthy and focusing on self-care and quality time with family and friends.
The past two weeks were filled with Defence Community activities and holiday festivities. Our traditional At Home event was held on December 7 at the various messes of the NCR.
This week we hosted Holidays with the Central Band at the Centrepointe Theatre and it was absolutely wonderful. The Central Band gave an outstanding performance on both nights with guest vocalist Loreena McKennitt enchanting the crowd in a way only she knows how to do.
CWO Dubuc and I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and enjoys a well-deserved break. Come back rested, ready to embrace the opportunities and face the challenges of the New Year. We would also like to recognize those who are serving away from home who cannot be here with us or their families during the holidays. We wish all of you, your families and loved ones, Happy Holidays and a New Year filled with joy, health and prosperity.
As always, Guard of Honour News welcomes your articles and comments.

Please note the staff will be taking a break over the holidays and return with the first edition of 2018 in mid-January.
