Well the new Vimy Oak has arrived and we planted it on Thursday, June 18. A local area resident was kind enough to pick it up near Dundas, Ontario and delivered it to us free of charge. All the seven small commemmerative plaques that were advertised to be available have now been sold and should be installed by the end of this coming week. Work on the Place Vimy Park bench is coming along well and it should be here by mid-August if all goes well.
We still have no idea when the legion will be able to reopen. It all depends on the Quebec Provincial Government and Quebec Legion Command as well.
We will keep you posted for sure.
Lest we forget…
