Out & About with OBAC

Getting out and meeting our members and future members is really important to OBAC. The gallery below shows where we've been lately. Be sure to check out our event calendar to see where we'll be in the near future.

Banners in Afghanistan

On April 4, 2010 the deployed military Mobile Support Equipment Operators (MSE Ops) in Afghanistan, better known as truckers, climbed their trucks to show their appreciation to OBAC. In a thank-you letter, they wrote: "From all the truckers in Afghanistan both military and civilian, we thank you for the banners. The support of truckers back in Canada not only encourages us, but reminds us of why we are here. The banners will be proudly displayed here in Kandahar in the New Canada House and in the kitchens of the forward bases in Afghanistan."

Park & Ritchie NB Convoy

OBAC's Joanne Ritchie and Jim Park were honoured to participate in the NB support convoy in a Freightliner Cascadia very kindly loaned to them for the day by Valley Truck Sales of Hartland, NB. Joanne and Jim leaned on a few of their industry friends and collected $2,000 for the cause. Thanks to Roxanne and Jo Anne for inviting us. It was a real thrill.

NB Convoy Guys

The guys followed a respectful few truck lengths behind the woman's group it was their day, after all. But that doesn't mean they were any less involved, Between the two groups, more than $42,000 was collected for the battle against breast cancer.
