Commemorative Banner project looking for photos

Throughout the communities of Saugeen Shores, again this Fall, there will be Commemorative Banners hanging prior to Remembrance Day.

Example of a banner that will hang in Southampton

The Town of Saugeen Shores Municipal Heritage Committee, in collaboration with the local Royal Canadian Legions, has established a continuing program that recognizes those who had lived in our communities and who made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting freedom.

Last year, the group collected 39 photos of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in WWI and WWII.  The cenotaphs in our communities include the names of those from Southampton, Port Elgin, Saugeen Township and Saugeen First Nation who lost their lives during these wars.

There are still more than 40 names for which no photos have come forward in order to produce banners.

If family members can provide photos or may also be willing to sponsor a banner in historic commemoration of a family member for this initiative, call the Town of Saugeen Shores’ Deputy Clerk, Tracey Edwards, at 519-832-2008 Ext. 105 or by email at heritage@saugeenshores.ca .
