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
During the eleven days of remembrance Canadian Legacy Project works with likeminded organizations to speak at our local schools. Our team understands that today’s youth are tomorrow’s business leaders, and educating these youth on the sacrifices made by our Canadian Armed Forces is very important. So many of our children are not being taught about our Canadian Armed Forces deep history and we believe if we are to be successful as a charity we need to bridge this gap.
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
