History of the 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 asked local individuals, families, and community groups to sponsor the creation of street banners honouring local veterans, which have been displayed in downtown Parry Sound annually in October and November.

This project was initiated by the 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.
