It's the time of year to reflect on the contributions of our service men and women. Leading up to the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, visit the CK Museum's new exhibit "We Will Remember" to learn the history of memorial projects undertaken locally. This exhibition will reflect on how local citizens memorialized WWI shortly after its end in order to cultivate a continued sense of value in community memorials that continue today.
We are also hosting an exhibit from the Archives of Ontario "Dear Sadie" that tells the stories of four diverse Ontarians, highlighting the impact that the war had on individual lives. It features a love story told through letters between a soldier and his sweetheart, the heartwarming correspondence between a frontlines surgeon and the patients whose lives he saved, and the remembrances of a veteran who returned to the battlefields 20 years later.
Postcards for Peace
Parents and Teachers! Write a postcard to a veteran with the CK Museum. Postcards for Peace, an initiative of Veterans Affairs Canada, invites individuals to send postcards to express messages of thanks to those who served Canada in times of war, military conflict, and peace, or to still-serving Canadian Armed Forces members. Postcards are available at the museum. The CK Museum will distribute completed postcards to long term care facilities throughout our community that care for older veterans.
