Introducing the 2017 Guides: James!

| February 10, 2017

The Juno Beach Centre is now open for the 2017 season. And a new year means a new Canadian student guide team!

James, from West Vancouver, BC is one of the first guides to arrive and will be with us until August. Here’s what he had to say about working on Juno Beach:

“I am now the same age as many of the soldiers who landed here, but because of their sacrifice, I am happily working on this beach rather than fighting for it. Many of the opportunities I have been afforded have been due to the work of veterans, from my local legion which awarded me my university scholarship to those who founded this very centre. I hope our visitors will appreciate their sacrifice upon leaving here as much as I do.”

Stop by the Juno Beach Centre to meet James and welcome him to Normandy! Stay tuned to meet the rest of the 2017 team in the coming days!
