Commemorating the First World War
Established as a living memorial to those Newfoundlanders who fought and died in the First World War, Memorial University will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the conflict. Planning is underway to develop a special program of initiatives and activities for 2014-19.
The First World War commemorative program will be in addition to Memorial’s current remembrance activities, such as the annual Ceremonies of Remembrance held on the university’s campuses each November and the laying of wreaths at public war memorials on Nov. 11 and July 1.
A commemoration steering committee, informed by community input gathered through a consultation process, is developing recommendations for consideration. Further information on the university’s plans will be available soon through this website.
