 Vimy Special Event held June 16th 

 more pictures on Legion Special Events 

THANK YOU

special thanks to all members of our Branch who volunteered to help at our event to mark the 100th Anniversary of Vimy Ridge.  The groups that participated had an enjoyable afternoon and evening and many members of our community have a better understanding of our WW I Military History. We also planted a Vimy Oak Tree.
The following is a brief history covering the heritage of these trees.  The Battle of Vimy Ridge in northern France, 9 April 1917, is considered to be one of the defining events in the history of our nation.  Where Allied troops had struggled and failed, the Canadians overcame great odds and eventually captured the Ridge at a cost of some 10,600 casualties.  After the battle, Lieutenant Leslie Miller of Scarborough, Ontario gathered up a handful of acorns from a partially buried English oak on the Ridge.  He sent the acorns home to his family with instructions to plant them.  In 1919 Lieutenant Miller returned, was given a 25 acre section of his father’s Scarborough farm and transplanted the oaks along the borders of his woodlot.  He named his farm “The Vimy Oaks”.  Today, a number of these majestic oaks are thriving in the same but smaller woodlot under the close care of Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church that purchased the farm property in 2002.  In January 2014, a group of volunteers, the “Vimy Oaks Legacy Corporation”, decided to repatriate offspring of these descendant oaks back to Vimy Ridge, whose oak trees had all been destroyed in the First World War.  These Vimy Oak saplings will be planted in the Vimy Foundation Centennial Park, adjacent to the Canadian National Vimy Memorial site, as part of centennial commemorations in France in 2017 and 2018. The Vimy Oaks Legacy Corporation made some of these saplings available for sale to qualifying organizations to honour the soldiers who fought at Vimy Ridge and other battles during the First World War and we are proud to have one.
Thanks again to all who made this a very special and meaningful event.
