Robert Manuel used to be a drum major in a marching band.
He has given that up because he is worried that his back will seize up in
the middle of a parade. He used to be very active in his community, but
now feels like he’s “on the sidelines rather than leading”.
He is proud of a recent accomplishment – starting in 2004, April 9
will be recognized as Vimy Ridge Day.
