Community Remembrance Project

The Community Remembrance Project is a partnership between Parry Sound High School (PSHS), the Town of Parry Sound, the Downtown Business Association, the Royal Canadian Legion - Branch 117, and the Museum on Tower Hill.  All of these organizations are asking local individuals, families, and community groups to sponsor the creation of street banners honouring local veterans, which will be put up in downtown Parry Sound every year in October and November.

This project was initiated by students and teachers involved in the Vimy 100 Trip at Parry Sound High School in 2016 as an important opportunity for the Parry Sound community to honour local veterans.

Ordering Banners

For $100, individuals, families, or community organizations can sponsor one side of a banner, which will honour a specific veteran who has a connection to the Parry Sound District.  Sponsors can choose their own veteran to put on a banner and provide a picture of them, or they can request that the Vimy 100 students choose a local veteran for them.

Orders for street banners will be accepted from May 14 until June 15, 2018.  For information on how to order a banner as well as the order form, please click the link below.
