Banners to honour Summerland soldiers

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I. One of projects to mark this anniversary is Summerland’s Remembrance Banner project.

This is a partnership of the Summerland Legion and the District of Summerland.

The intent of this project is to remember the soldiers who are listed on our cenotaph.

At present, 19 banners have been made. The aim of the project is to have street banners on Main Street, Rosedale Avenue and Victoria Road.

There still are photographs of eight World War I soldiers and 18 World War II soldiers from the cenotaph who need banners. (Unfortunately, photographs are not available for all soldiers listed on the cenotaph.)

The cost is $186 per banner. The banners are made in Summerland at InkWorks,  at the corner of Victoria and Dale Meadows Roads. If you wish to assist with the project, contact David Gregory at 250-494-9030.
