An important part of what the Canadian Legacy Projects does within the community is educate our younger generation about the sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers.
The Bomber Command Museum
The Bomber Command Museum operates on the premise that it is the people involved in the history that is presented, that is of paramount importance. Visitors to the museum soon become aware that a number of individuals are intimately connected to the aircraft, artifacts, and artwork in the museum. http://www.bombercommandmuseum.ca/index.html
The Veterans Food Drive would not be as successful as it is without the support given to us by our younger student population. When the event started in 2007 we were very concerned about the lack of knowledge our children had about the sacrifices made by our veterans. Since the events inception we have partnered with local school boards to share information about the Veterans Food Drive and arrange for guests speakers from the Legion and the Veterans Army Motorcycle Club. Now our younger generation are the number one supporters of the Veterans Food Drive.http://www.canadianlegacy.org/veterans-food-drive
Field of Crosses
Each day at the Field of Crosses, a local school participates in the flag raising ceremony. During this time the school sings our National anthem and we later host these students at the Kensington Legion for breakfast where they are paired with Veterans who can guide the students through their personal experiences within Canada’s military. www.fieldofcrosses.com
