10 years later, Boomer’s Legacy shines

Dear editor,

As we commemorate the 10th anniversary of Boomer’s Legacy,  it is an honour to thank our consistent prime sponsors, 19 Wing Comox, CFB Esquimalt, Thrifty Foods, First Insurance, and Driftwood Storage. We feel humbled by the generous support of the many donors, including this newspaper and the many volunteers and our tireless cyclists who raise awareness and funds that provide the opportunity for our soldiers to help others.

Through Boomer’s Legacy, our military members have been able to help abroad and at home in many ways, including; saving lives, providing shelter, food, medical and educational supplies. We have raised well over $1,100,000 and more than 450,000 “Boomer” Caps  have been lovingly made and distributed to young children around the world.

If anyone has some extra wool, it would be a blessing if you could drop it off at First Insurance on Eighth Street  Courtenay,  for some of our very avid knitters to work their magic.

During this milestone  anniversary of Andrew’s death and the forming of Boomer’s Legacy, may all those who have helped in so many ways know that they have truly made a positive difference. We thank you.

Sincerely,  Maureen and Hans Eykelenboom
