4. St. Norbert Veterans Memorial Association (SNVMA)
Since 2010, through efforts of local citizens, the PAL (55+) Gardening Club members and strong community support, a Remembrance Day Service is now held at the St. Norbert World War I Cenotaph memorial at the St. Norbert Catholic cemetery. It has grown to include government dignitaries, St. Norbert collegiate students, various branches of the Canadian Armed Forces and large crowds of community members.
The SNVMA has welcomed PAL (55+) as a valued community partner and recognizes their ongoing contributions in making this community endeavor an increasing success.
The St. Norbert Veterans Memorial Association (SNVMA), formed in April 2012 to maintain the Cenotaph, promote public awareness, connect with descendants and honour the fallen soldiers and those involved in the various wars. Initial research efforts have created a booklet, “St Norbert and World War I”.
