Community of Cardigan to Restore Cenotaph
Development and Technology
“Cardigan hosts one of the most highly attended Remembrance Day ceremonies in the province. As in all communities, the memories of our war heroes and their sacrifices are very important to the people here. The community wants to make sure that those soldiers are remembered in a dignified way,” said Minister Currie.
Some of the names of armed forces personnel from the area are missing from the cenotaph. The project will correct that and will also replace the base of the cenotaph, which is in need of repair.
Minister Currie presented a cheque from the Community Development Fund (CDF) to the village today. The CDF contribution to the project is $6,821. The Cardigan branch of the Canadian Legion, which is sponsoring the project, will pay the remainder of the project’s $13,642 price tag.
