Calgary, AB – Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) representatives were on hand at the Steaks for Soldiers event at CFB Petawawa today, where 2,000 Canadian AAA, well-aged strip loins were served to the troops and their families.
Sponsor a Steak for a Returning Soldier campaign leader Harvey Dann was also at the event, the eighth Steaks for Soldiers event held in appreciation of Canadian troops since 2007. “I am thrilled that contributions to the campaign will support this event,” Dann said.
The CCA has supported the Steaks for Soldiers campaign from the outset. When the first troop rotation came back from Afghanistan in 2007, the CCA sponsored the 1,700 steaks served to the returning troops of the Royal Canadian Regiment and their families at CFB Petawawa. Today’s event was open to all personnel stationed at CFB Petawawa.
