A Vimy Oak Comes to Halifax

The NS Army Cadet League is honoured to be dedicating a Vimy Oak at Sullivan’s Pond as a living memorial in honour of all those who fought.

This oak is a direct descendant of the oak trees that grew at Vimy Ridge prior to the First World War when all but one of the majestic trees were destroyed.
This is the only Vimy Oak to come to Nova Scotia and was made possible by Earthcraft Landscape Limited of Halifax and Mr Jim Landry, the Executive Director of Landscape New Brunswick. Descendants of these great symbolic trees are being repatriated to Vimy Ridge to create a living memorial and connecting modern Canada and modern France.

WHEN: Saturday, April 7th at 11 am

WHERE: Sullivan's Pond Cenotaph

Questions should be directed to Colonel (retired) Marie LeLoup at 902-223-7072.
