Richer man marks historic trail

 Roger Godard recently received an award for his work on a project that could see signage installed along the historic Dawson Trail.

   A Richer man was recently recognized for his hard work in marking a historic trail that runs through the community.

   Roger Godard has being recognized for his project called “Identifying the Manitoba leg of the Dawson Trail” by the Association for Manitoba Archives. He was nominated for the award by Le comité des amis de la priere (Friends in Prayer).

   Godard is very excited about the award, which involves marking the historical Dawson Trail.

   “I don’t want to divulge too much because there is funding involved and other aspects – but it involves putting up signs along the actual Dawson Trail,” stated Godard.

   The Historical Dawson Trail is often referred to as the Forgotten Trail, yet its construction was one of the most significant events in Canadian History.

   The Dawson Trail was named after Simon J. Dawson who was a surveyor on the expedition that led to the construction of a road that would eventually link the east to the west and unite the country from coast to coast. In 1868 a decision to proceed with the construction of a corduroy road was made and it took three years to build.

   Using Manitoba Archives, Godard created a project that consists of visibly marking the Manitoba leg of the Dawson Trail as it winds its way in broken stretches through Lorette, Dufresne, Ste. Anne and Richer and continues eastward all the way to the Whitemouth River, then down to Sprague.

   The Association for Manitoba Archives’ main objective is to enhance the quality of service provided by archives and archivists and to promote a better understanding and increased public awareness of the role and uses of archives.

Sea cadets parade in Lorette

Fifty cadets from the 330 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Dawson paraded in their final review before over one hundred and fifty friends and family members.

By Marianne Curtis

   On June 19, the Cadets and officers of the 330 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Dawson held their Annual Ceremonial Review.  The event took place at the Lorette Community Complex and marked the end of regular training for this cadet year.

   This year’s special guest was Vic Toews, MP for Provencher. He personally inspected the fifty members of the Ship’s Company, and led the spectators through the displays.  

   As part of the event, a very special award was given to the Sea Cadet Corps Dawson.

   “We were chosen as the Top Unit out of 38 Sea Cadets in Manitoba/Northwestern Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta,” explained Lieutenant (Navy) Denis Côté,   

   As part of the ceremonies guests were invited to visit a number of displays that showed a year’s worth of hard work, and includes the cadets’ activities such as the Ship Simulator weekend, the Manitoba Sea Cadet Winter Games, Range and Sports, a marching demonstration from the Award-Winning Drill Team and even a mini-concert from the band.

   “The remainder of the ACR went very well, including a demonstration by the award-winning marching drill team, and a band mini-concert,” added Cote. “Various displays showed off the cadet’s work to over one hundred and fifty people in the audience.”

   A number of top-achieving cadets were also awarded various commendations, awards, and medals during this event.

   Now that the cadet year is over, over thirty of the cadets have been selected to attend the Summer Training Centers this year. The centers are located across Canada with many of the cadets going to Comox, BC, Kingston, ON, and Acadia NB.

   Cadets is a national program for youth ages 12 to 18 who want to make new friends while participating in fun and challenging activities. The new training year starts the 13th of September, 2010, but new cadets are welcome any time. Sea Cadets are sponsored by the Navy League of Canada and supported in partnership by the Canadian Forces. Enrolment and uniforms are provided at no cost.

For the first time, 330 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Dawson was named the Top Unit out of 38 Sea Cadets in Manitoba/Northwestern Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
