Some Memorial Plaques mounted in the "Colonel The Honourable W.J. Henderson MBE QC LLD CD Room"
The Memorial Plaque Project
Shortly after the Museum’s opening in May 1996, a project was undertaken by members of the Museum staff and volunteers to create a Memorial Room. The room is in the central focal area of the Museum and contains three Vimy Ridge Memorial Statues (the original molds), a Royal Canadian Corps of Signals Book of Remembrance and a medals display case. The room is painted in a deep burgundy and accented with an oak rail. On one wall are the words "WE REMEMBER", and on the opposite wall "NOUS NOUS SOUVIENDRONS", the letters are made of oak. The room has recently been named the Colonel The Honourable W.J. Henderson MBE QC LLD CD Room in honour of a dedicated and active patron of the Museum, the Right Honourable William J. Henderson.
In addition to the above mentioned objects of memorial in the room, the Memorial Plaque Project is an initiative that was started by the Museum’s Board of Directors, whose purpose is to provide a method whereby a donation can be made in memory of a deceased military member, loved one, or friend. When a donation is made, a medallion constructed of brass will be engraved with the donor's name, and underneath it, the name of the individual to be remembered. The plaque will then be mounted on the wall of the memorial room to remain as a permanent reminder of those who were near and dear to us.
A photograph of the plaque is pictured below. It is approximately 4 1/2" high, by 2 1/2" wide, by 3/4" thick, and depicts a stylized Maple Leaf at its' base. As previously mentioned the medallion is made of brass, and will be mounted on a base constructed from a block of solid oak.
The price of the Memorial Plaque is $200.00, which covers manufacturing costs, engraving and mounting. In return, the donor will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount, and of course, the satisfaction of knowing that someone who meant so much to them, will be remembered forever.
