Historic military vehicles in Prince George Monday
There's going to be a convoy coming through Prince George on July 30, but it won't be the big rigs C.W. McCall sang about.
This convoy will be a number of historic military vehicles, making their way from Vancouver to Fairbanks, Alaska to mark the 70th anniversary of the Alcan Highway and to raise public awareness and remembrance of veterans.
The convoy members are rendezvousing today in Chilliwack before leaving Saturday morning.
They are taking the trek in small stages, stopping at Legions along the way to give people a chance to see these historic vehicles.
Convoy coordinator John Hawthorne expects there will be about a half-dozen vehicles making the trip up from Vancouver. They will be joined in Dawson Creek by other vehicles coming from Edmonton.
The convoy will be at the Prince George Legion on Monday, July 30, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
