the City of Markham on Saturday, June 9
as we dedicate Veterans Square and
Cenotaph in historic Markham Village to
those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice for Canada's freedom.
The event will begin with a procession
from Markham District Veterans
Association to Veterans Square where the
ceremony will take place. The City of
Markham will unveil a plaque dedication,
followed by an Act of Remembrance,
laying of wreaths and a dove release.
This important memorial square has been
revitalized into a vibrant,
multi-functional civic site with a
rehabilitated cenotaph and adjoining
Veterans Square to commemorate Markham's
war veterans and firefighters.
Funding for this project was provided in
part by the Government of Canada through
the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure
