City of Peterborough presents The Trillium Project: Vimy Ridge 100th Anniversary Commemoration

Date:Sunday, April 9, 2017
Time:2 p.m.
Location:    Confederation Park (500 George St. N., Peterborough)
In what will be a powerful and visually stunning display, ceramic trilliums will cover the front of the mond at the memorial with each trillium representing a person from the County and the City of Peterborough who was killed in the First World War - 16 red trilliums for those killed at Vimy Ridge and the Battle of Hill 70 and 600 white trilliums for those killed in the rest of the war. Councillor Clarke is asking the community to support this act of remembrance by purchasing a trillium for $30, with the trilliums delivered to their owners after the commemoration ceremony, or by giving a donation for the project through the City of Peterborough, which is eligible for a charitable tax receipt.

For more information please call 705-749-3149.
