Vimy Ridge Commemoration

The Vimy Ridge Commemoration took place Sunday April 9th at the Cenotaph in Confederation Park. This was a significant point in the history of Canada. Over 600 local people died in WWI, with a population of under 10,000, that is a significant loss.  As a guild we created a ceramic trillium for each of these people, the sale of which  will support veterans directly and provide funds to repair to the Cenotaph.

The Kawartha Potters Guild was honoured to take part in this event and we were thrilled with the many people that showed up to honour our veterans.  Every one of the trilliums was sold.
