Festival of Remembrance
Major (Ret'd) David Smith organized Festival of Remembrance VII, which took place on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 7:30pm in the Holy Heart Theatre in St. John's. It provided a stellar night of entertainment and remembrance. The Memorial University Fanfare Trumpeters were able to participate due to a grant acquired by Mr. Taylor, and they were prominently featured in the major scenes of the show. In association with musicians from the Church Lads Brigade Band, CBS Concert Band, City of St. John's Pipes & Drums, St. Bonaventure Camerata, Peter Halley and Shelley Neville, and Canadian Forces members, the cast rehearsed the morning of the show and pulled everything together for a successful event that evening. Dignitaries from various uniformed service organizations were present, as was the Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador.
