Guichon endorses tattoo

Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon supports the Okanagan Military Tattoo July 25 and 26 at Kal Tire Place.

The Okanagan Military Tattoo has garnered a high-profile endorsement.

Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon, the Queen’s representative in B.C., has agreed to be a patron for the military tattoo, which runs July 25 and 26 at Kal Tire Place.

“It is a real honour to have vice regal patronage particularly since the tattoo is a relatively new entity,” said Derek Hall, Okanagan MIlitary Tattoo Society vice-president.

He added that Guichon’s patronage gives the organization credibility when  working with performers, sponsors and government and military organizations.

Planning for the 2015 tattoo is well underway and there have been discussions with regimental bands and drill teams from Canada, the U.S. and Armenia.

Tickets for the 2015 tattoo are on sale at the Ticket Seller or at 250 549-SHOW (7469).
