Brandon Salutes handed out another “salute” at CFB Shilo on Saturday.
Ray and Leita Piche, owners of the Forbidden Flavours coffee shop franchise at CFB Shilo, were recognized for their unfailing and enthusiastic support to the military community.
“Their generosity often exceeds the expected, especially given their daily challenges of running a small business,” said Matt Bolley, chair of Brandon Salutes.
The Piches’ hard work and continued contribution to the Shilo community help people arriving at Shilo from all parts of Canada feel welcome and at home. Their shop is a gathering place for everyone on the base and, as such, fosters the relationship between the military, civilians and their families.
The Brandon Salutes committee presents official “salutes” to nominated members of the community who have made significant contributions toward achieving Brandon Salutes’ mission of fostering unity of the military and civilian communities in the Brandon area.
Saturday’s honour was presented in front of a large crowd gathered to attend the annual Winterfest event at CFB Shilo.
