Cenotaph Maintenance 

   Scott Filman recently planted some very nice flowers around our Cenotaph.  This is the most important part of our branch property as it is here to honour and remember all the men and women who have served our country during times of peace and war.  We have a duty to ensure that this memorial is always kept neat and clean and the flower beds and walkways are free of weeds.

Thank you for the great response

 Book of Remembrance 


 We now have a Book or Remembrance on display inour lobby.  Also, please see the photo of our Veteran’s Board.  Each week, I will feature a member of our community who made the supreme sacrifice in the service of our country.  We had one causality from the Boer War and a number from WW I and WWII.  We are very grateful to the Flamborough Archives for sharing this information with us.  Over the years, a very dedicated group of volunteers from Archives have been researching and putting together the story of these local heroes.  The book is a work in progress and I have put my contact information near the book in case someone has additional material to add to our files.  Presently, we have the Boer War and WW 1 covered.  Shortly, we will be adding the information about our WW II casualties.
