THE MEMORY PROJECT @ Caledon Public Library
Caledon Public Library is extending a special invitation to local Second World War and Korean War veterans to join us at the Albion Bolton Branch on October 9th to participate in a nation-wide oral history project. The Memory Project Archive is travelling across Canada to preserve a legacy of Canadian service and sacrifice.
An initiative of The Historica-Dominion Institute, The Memory Project Archive is creating an unprecedented record of Canada’s participation in the Second World War and Korean War as seen through the eyes of thousands of men and women who were there. It is providing every living veteran with the opportunity to preserve their memories through recorded interviews and digitized memorabilia. Their stories are available, in both official languages, at www.thememoryproject.com
The Memory Project Archive is made possible by a contribution from the Government of Canada through the Celebrations and Commemorations Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
If you are a veteran or know of someone who would be interested, please contact the library to register as spaces are limited. Scheduled interviews and the digitalization of memorabilia will take place throughout the day and members of the public are welcome to join Caledon Public Library as we encourage our local veterans to tell their stories and create a legacy to share with our community.
