Happy Fourth of July/Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!
Happy Fourth of July!

Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject to the monarch of Britain and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4.

Happy Canada Day! 
Bonne fête du Canada!
The MVC is proud of our Canadian veterans and military. July 1st is Canada Day. Canada Day is the national day of Canada, just like Independence/Fourth of July is in the United States. Canada Day is a federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of July 1, 1867, the effective date of the Constitution Act, 1867, which united the three separate colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. Originally called Dominion Day, the holiday was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day celebrations take place throughout the country, as well as in various locations around the world, attended by Canadians living abroad.

Minot Pre-Rally

The deadline to register for the Minot Pre-Rally has passed.  Remember, the campground changed the deadline from July 10 to June 10th.  A mass email was sent out to everyone with that information, a new flyer, and all our social media sites were updated with that information.  If you did not receive the email, check your email settings, spam folder, etc.

Memorial Day is here. Please remember the reason for the weekend and holiday. A time set a side to remember the men and women in uniform that gave their life for our freedoms. It is not about those currently serving (that is Armed Forces Day) or those that served whether they are still with us or have passed away (that is Veterans Day). It is time to show our respect and gratitude to the families of those that made the ultimate sacrifice and to honor the memory, courage, and honor of those that have fallen.
