The Thunder Bay and District Injured Workers Support Group would like to issue a very, very large thank you Bob Larocque for his many years of hard work in making the Thunder Bay Day of Mourning Ceremony the best such event in Ontario.
He has taken Thunder Bay’s Day of Mourning Ceremony from a small gathering, of injured workers and union activists, beside the Injured Workers Monument to an event that attracted the attention of the Premier of Ontario. This is almost exclusively because of the work and organizational skills of Bob Larouque.
Bob has announced that this will be his last year on the Day of Mourning Planning Committee (It should be noted that I haven’t began my extensive lobbying of Bob to change his mind.). As a member of that Committee for several years now, I know how valuable his tireless work, organizational skills and knowledge was to the event. Although I know the event will continue to be a success without him, I can’t say I know how that will happen.
Again thank you Bob Larocque for everything you have done.
I would encourage everyone to attend the Moses Sheppard Scholarship FundraisingDinner to be held on November 27th at the Slovak Legion. This is another amazing event put on by Bob Larocque.
