The primary goal of the Living Memorial Commemoration Fund is to empower the entire university community, whether faculty, students or staff, to design their own commemorative project. Virtually any project can have a commemorative element. For example, a sporting event could be held to commemorate the spontaneous truce that arose between combatants in December 1914. Or, uniforms or other historical pieces could be put on display during a banquet or other event. Students of natural history could plant a garden of forget-me-not flowers.
To assist the university community with their project planning, a searchable Ideas Bank has been created. The bank is populated with suggestions and ideas gathered during the extensive consultations that were held within the university community and across the province. Simply enter a term that is part of your commemoration idea (e.g. "flowers") and see if there are any existing suggestions.
If you are interested in adding any ideas, please e-mail Douglas Ballam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
