Honouring those who served, First and Second World Wars, They Walked These Streets, We Will Remember Them

They Walked These Streets, We Will Remember Them
November 3, 2022, 7PM

Please join Bloor West Village residents and high school teachers, Katy Whitfield and Ian DaSilva, creators of “They Walked These Streets, We Will Remember Them” present their work at our November 3rd , 2022 meeting.

This commemoration which has been running for the past two years, now honours over sixty BWV residents who served in the First and Second World Wars and who never returned home. These individuals were truly local, living on streets bounded by Runnymede, Jane, Bloor Street West and Dundas Street West. During November 2020 and November 2021, this solemn and beautiful tribute complete with soldier profiles and QR codes connected to their military records were held on the lawns of 104 Colbeck and 285 Durie streets.

The project will continue again this year in 2022. Come and learn more about our courageous and brave young people who served, yet also walked these streets before us. Maybe one of the veterans lived on your street?
