By CFB Halifax Public Affairs

The HFX Wanderers DND Appreciation Match took place on Saturday, June 10, and it was an absolute blast!  

The Wanderers took a 2-0 victory over Winnipeg’s Valour FC. AVR GREGORY COLE

The Match included amazing performances by the Stadacona Band and 12 Wing Pipes and Drums Shearwater bands, a CH-140 Aurora flyby from 14 Wing Greenwood, a flag party and exciting activations from various DND/CAF units including CFB Halifax Fire & Emergency Services, the Halifax & Region Military Family Resource Centre, Canadian Forces Recruiting Centre Atlantic, 36 Canadian Brigade Group, 12 Wing and HMCS Scotian. Also, a big shout out to our furry friends SONAR (Royal Canadian Navy mascot) and Juno (Canadian Army mascot) for keeping Wanderers fans entertained.

The game ended with a fantastic victory for the Wanderers, with a final score of 2-0.  Many thanks to the Wanderers for hosting this incredible event and continuing to recognize our Defence community and Bravo Zulu to all participating units!
