The annual Sir John A Birthday Dinner has been replaced by a February Heritage Dinner
The Canadian Heritage Dinner
The first Canadian Heritage Dinner, sponsored by the KHS, was held in February to coincide with Heritage Week celebrations. The theme of the talks will complement Heritage Week. The location will remain at the Senior Staff Mess, Royal Military College. We expect to hold a similar dinner in late February 2020.
