Barrie gets the Royal treatment

Barrie is about to receive a Royal visit, the first time in more than a 100 years that a member of the Royal Family has visited the community.
Princess Anne will be in town Tuesday, Oct. 22, visiting her regiment, The Grey and Simcoe Foresters. While here, the City plans a dedication ceremony for the proposed Military Heritage Park on the north shore, a ceremony at which Princess Anne is scheduled to attend.
The last time a Royal was in Barrie was 1901 when the Duke and Duchess of York visited. They were later to become King George V and Queen Mary.
Princess Anne will be greeted with a Royal Salute played by the Pipes & Drums of The Grey and Simcoe Foresters. This will be followed by a Guard of Honour ceremony and inspection of her regiment. After the Guard of Honour, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal will join Mayor Lehman for the Military Heritage Park dedication, 2:15 p.m. at the Southshore Community Centre.
