“Salute” For Forbidden Flavours

Forbidden Flavours Presentation

Brandon Salutes handed out another “Salute” this morning at CFB Shilo. Ray and Leita 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 Matt Bolley, Chair of Brandon Salutes.

Ray and Leita’s hard work and continued contribution to the Shilo community help people arriving at Shilo 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. This morning’s honour was presented in front of a large crowd gathered to attend the annual Winterfest event at CFB Shilo.


The salute is as old as history itself and is at once a greeting and a mark of respect. It is also a mark of trust and confidence and an act of courtesy, good manners and loyalty. The Brandon Salutes committee presents official SALUTES to nominated members of the community who have made significant contributions toward achieving Brandon Salute’s mission: “to foster unity of the military and civilian communities in the Brandon area”.
