The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 73 has rededicated the Cenotaph on Hill Street. At the ceremony their President Bob Penner said the Cenotaph was dedicated on August 9th, 1959 and with the repairs it will hopefully last another 54 years. He said the cement has been replaced and sealed in the yard and base and the fence replaced. He said they had the old hand rail system removed and have changed everything to the current code of 42 inches, on the east side overlooking Third Avenue the words Lest We Forget have been laser cut into steel panels and welded into place and on the west side they have gates and on each gate there is a poppy that has been laser cut as well.
Wreathes were laid and messages brought by representatives of the Legion, MP Niki Ashton, MLA Clarence Pettersen and the communities of Flin Flon, Creighton and Denare Beach.
