Brandon Salutes handed out another "Salute" at CFB Shilo.
Leita and Ray Piche, owners of the Forbidden Flavours coffee shop franchise at CFB Shilo, were recognized for their unfailing and enthusiastic support to the military community.
"Their generosity often exceeds the expected, especially given their daily challenges of running a small business," said Brandon Salutes chair Matt Bolley.
The hard work and continued contribution to the Shilo community by the Piches help people arriving at this Manitoba-based military community from all parts of Canada feel welcome and at home.
Their shop is a gathering place for everyone and, as such, fosters the relationship between the military, civilians, and their families.
The Brandon Salutes committee presents official SALUTES to nominated members of the community who have made significant contributions toward achieving Brandon Salutes' mission of fostering unity of the military and civilian communities in the Brandon area.
Leita Piche, who grew up and attended high school in Neepawa, received the "Salute" while attending the annual Winterfest activities on the army base.
