WHEREAS we honour his sacrifice and the sacrifices made by his family and loved ones at home.

THEREFORE, I, Blake Campbell, Mayor of the Town of Gull Lake, do hereby proclaim August 9th as Captain Keith Mirau Day in the Town of Gull Lake and urge all citizens to recognize the efforts made by all those who serve our country with honour.
