10 year anniversary

Hello to all, i was wondering if there was anything planned for the 10th year of the tragedy in Peggy's Cove?
I was part of the search and rescue and recovery operations on HMCS Halifax, the mothership of the operation. after 10 years it's still very hard for me to talk about my experience, i can only imagine what it's like for the families and loved ones of the victims.
My doctor says it would probably be a good thing for me to go back and bring some kind of closure.
My thoughts are with you everyday.

Hello, Mr. Hatman. I'm glad you wrote. I will look into this for you. I have no idea if there is anything planned and haven't heard anything that would indicate that there is.

I'm particularly glad you wrote today, because I am hurting pretty badly today over the loss of my daughter and the fallout from that. I'm so sorry for your terrible experience with this horrible tragedy. I'll post information, if I find anything.

If anyone that visits this board knows of any 10 year memorial, please post.

Thanks,

Barbara

Hello,

My name is Nelisha Vellani and I am a Researcher with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in Toronto.

As part of the Investigative Unit, we are currently focusing on Aviation safety and using the 10th anniversary of Swissair 111 as a focal point for our coverage. We are looking to speak with families of victims about their experiences and also about key issues that are still affecting the safety of aviation. I came across this forum while doing some research and thought it would be a great place to start.

My e-mail address is: nelisha.vellani@cbc.ca

Family members of the victims of swissair 111 should have received a mailing from the National Air Disaster Alliance/Foundation (www.PlaneSafe.org), with the following information regarding the 10th year annivesary of the tragedy:

Tuesday, September 2, 2008- 11:00am Memorial Service at Bayswater Memorial site which is about an hour from Peggy's Cove.

Lunch following at the Blandford Community Center, down the road from the Bayswater Memorial site. It is being hosted by the Interfaith Council of Halifax.

They plan to have boats available for those who would like to visit the crash site, however, John O'Donnell has asked that you let him know in advance if you would like to make the boat trip. (902) 802-4518
