Tributes can be made to the Royal Canadian Legion Youth Sports Program In Your region. The Legion’s National Youth Track and Field competition is the only one of its kind in Canada and has come to be regarded as one of the best in the country. Annually, it helps hundreds of athletes aged 12 to 17 years to develop their potential and strive to become Canada’s future Olympians. In fact, many of the Legion’s former participants have gone on to international and Olympic success. Barbara dearest, we all, at some future time will not fail to meet thee in the realm of the stars – to love thee once again in that Starry Vale. In the meantime, while you await us there, fair-thee-well our Blyth Spirit.
