Wall of Recognition to be unveiled

Courtenay Legion Branch 17 is closing in on final details for the unveiling July 16 of the Wall of Recognition in Jubilee Square by Lieut.-Gov. Steven Point.


The wall, featuring three sets of photo vignettes depicting Canadian forces, RCMP and Merchant Marine during both wartime and peacekeeping operations is designed to honour all Canadian participants in fields of overseas conflict. “Although many Canadians can connect with the two world wars,” said project co-ordinator Ron Webber, “we felt that it was important to recognize those who have served in operations since 1945 as well as to honour RCMP, First Nations and both men and women who served or are serving overseas in uniform.” The project planning spanned a number of years involving Webber, three Legion presidents, staff at the Courtenay and District Museum, City of Courtenay staff and ABC Printing. Funding for the project was through a grant from the Comox Valley Foundation with the assistance of the Comox Valley 4H Society, as well as donations from Legion members and the Ladies Auxiliary Following the unveiling at Jubilee Square between the Sid Williams Theatre and the Native Sons Halls a luncheon will be catered by the Ladies Auxiliary to Branch 17 with the Lieutenant Governor in attendance. — Courtenay Legion Branch 17
