War brides get ready for reunion in Victoria

The Canadian War Brides and Families Association is hosting its annual reunion in Victoria

The Canadian War Brides and Families Association is hosting its annual reunion in Victoria, British Columbia April 12 to 14. They have lots of fun events planned and encourage any war brides and family members to join them at the Fairmont Empress Hotel.

There were 48,000 war brides and 22,000 children that crossed the Atlantic to join their Canadian husbands and fathers. War bride numbers have diminished, but we know there are thousands of war bride children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren out there and we’d love to see you.

For more information and your reunion registration forms please contact war bride Joan Reichardt at 250-352-7013 or jreichardt@netidea.com.
