Honour A Hero


Honour a Hero is a 3000 sq. foot exhibit of Canadian Military artifacts from 1812 to Afghanistan. It is displayed for one week each

genealogy enthusiasts.

Student Involvement

Dedicated Volunteers

Each year it takes approximately forty dedicated legion members and general public to setup the exhibit. Sixty enthusiastic student volunteers in running the Honour A Hero program for the week. I cannot express my deepest gratitude to all the volunteers for taking time out of their lives to help in running this program.

Thank You!
One of my greatest passions is to impart my knowledge of war to the younger generation who hopefully will pass the torch of Remembrance on to the next generation. Every year local schools and teachers are contacted to set up a time to view the exhibit. The education system cannot teach the school children about the war years in a classroom setting, as we can through the Honour A Hero exhibit and program. The exhibit was divided in to eight stations with two students at each location. The students talk about the artifacts that are within their station and in turn pass this knowledge on to the elementary students.
