Pay Tribute to Five Fallen Heroes at Coboconk

A Special Memorial Service in memory of five young Coboconk men who have paid the supreme sacrifice on world battlefronts in the present conflict, was held in Christ Church, Coboconk, on Sunday, September 3.

Rev. Mr. Green, of Fenelon Falls, conducted the service, bringing a consoling and helpful message to all. At the conclusion of the Church service, the Coboconk Platoon of the 2nd Midland Regt, (R) marched from the church to the cenotaph where wreaths were placed and prayer was conducted by the minister.

Wreaths were laid in memory of Lloyd Wakelin, Allan Olsen, Kenneth McGregor, James Sheldon, and Lloyd Truax, by Richard Rutter, and Army Veteran, and by Jack Mackie, R.C.A.F.

An outgrowth of the service has been the setting up of a Memorial Fund to which contributions will be accepted by Garnet Graham, secretary, or Charles Bowins, Treasurer.
