Commemorate the anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge (April 9-12, 1917) by coming to this exciting presentation. Paul Randall will explore the origin and events around this momentous battle and its local connection, as well as dispel myths of Vimy Ridge and look at the symbolism behind the Vimy Ridge Memorial. Plus, he will talk about the upcoming exhibit called Summerland Remembers the Defenders of the Empire. This is the first of a series of lectures on World War One.
The presentation will be from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Summerland Museum. Admission is by donation. For more information, email Claire Macdonald at email@example.com or call 250.494.9395.
