Preserving a Piece of History
- Board bequeaths War Memorial to town -
Victoria Public School closed at the conclusion of the 2013-14 school year, but it leaves a lasting legacy in the town of Tecumseh.
Among the artifacts remaining in the 89 year old school was a framed certificate honouring former students who served our nation during World War II. The list includes some of the most prominent names in the Town’s history.
On Tuesday, July 8th at Town Council’s regularly scheduled public meeting, the Greater Essex County District School Board will present the certificate to the town’s Historical Society for its permanent collection.
For more information contact Public Relations Officer Scott Scantlebury @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10224 or 519-995-5797.
