Citizens of Coboconk to Build new Memorial Hall

Public meeting called for Friday, March 30, to Complete Plans – To Honour War Heroes.

Citizens of Coboconk and vicinity have reason to be proud of the large number of men from that community serving in the Armed Forces, some eighty persons from this small centre being on service in various parts of the world.

With the thought in mind of making some tangible acknowledgement of this service, steps are already under way to arrange for the building of a new Memorial Hall in honour of those who served and will return to partake of its benefits and in memory to those who gave their all for King and country.

The plan developed from discussions held among the citizens of the community as to the best means of showing appreciation to those who served and the Memorial Hall plan has been widely accepted as the most desirable. Not only will it be a Memorial to the fallen, but it will provide those who return and their succeeding generations, a suitable place in which to conduct and enjoy community activities.

A plaque will be placed in the new Hall with all the names of those who served suitable inscribed.

A public meeting to discuss the entire project has been called for Friday evening, March 30 in the Masonic Hall, Coboconk to which local members of Provincial and Federal Governments have been invited and where complete details of the proposed plan will be dealt with.

While other communities are considering ways and means of honouring their war heroes, Coboconk will be among the first to put a definite plan into operations.
