20th Annual Tri-Service CIC Mess Dinner - Saturday 3 November 2018 - Government House Victoria BC
Lieutenant-Colonel Terry Wayne Kopan, O.M.M., M.O.M, C.D. with former Governor-General Michaelle Jean
A Spectacular Success!
This year's event marked the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Dinner, the 100th Anniversary of Sea Cadets in Canada, and a tribute to the lifetime achievements of the Dinner founder and CIC Superstar, Lieutenant-Colonel Terry Kopan.
Special guests included Bridagier-General Dave Cochrane, Formation Commander for the National Cadet & Junior Canadian Ranger Support Group, Commodore Angus Topshee, Commander Canadian Fleet Pacific, and a strong contingent from the Regional Cadet Support Unit (Pacific). Also joining were all of our League partners, Branch Association members and guests. A special thank-you goes-out to the Naden Band for their amazing music, as well as the Directors of the Navy League of Canada who both attended and generously provided all of the guests with gifts!
Branch Association President, Lieutenant-Colonel (Ret) Steve Deschamps delivered a moving and heartfelt tribute to LCol Terry Kopan (who became too ill to join us for the function); a video of LCol Deschamps' tribute is available (below).
