The Veterans Commemorative Monument Committee is pleased to announce that Arthur Funeral Home and Cremation Centre will be hosting a brunch fundraiser in support of the ongoing project on Sunday, April 26th from 10:00am until 2:00pm at the Grand Gardens North.
“We are very pleased to be a part of such a worthwhile cause,” said Bruce Cooke, General Manager of Arthur Funeral Home and Cremation Centre. “We have many close relationships with the military families in our community. We see this monument as a great way to acknowledge all veterans who have and continue to serve, giving them dignity and respect for the sacrifices they make. As a society, it is our obligation and promise to never forget them.”
The brunch will honour our veterans, men and women of service, their families, as well as supporters of the Veterans Commemorative Monument. Proceeds raised will go toward the construction of the Veterans Commemorative Monument in Sault Ste. Marie. Tickets are $25.00 each for adults and $15.00 for children. They can be purchased at the Arthur Funeral Home, Grand Gardens North, and from Committee members.
The Committee will also be providing an update at the April 13th City Council meeting on the progress of the project.
Another information booth will be set up in the Station Mall from April 17th – 18th near the Roots store. Anyone wishing to have a Committee member visit their organization, business, school, or establishment to talk about the project should contact Committee Chair Clyde Healey at (705) 946-2464 or email [email protected]
