Just a few thoughts on the name Memorial Centre. We would do well to remember that “kids” aged 18-19 gave not only their time and money but their youth and, in many cases, their lives in time of war.
That families who saw their children go off to fight and die contributed their hard-earned 1946 dollars to construct the present building.
Those men now in their 70s (who were those “kids”) are still living with the memories of the horrors of war.
They have not forgotten. Should we?
If you do not understand why it is the Memorial Arena, may I suggest you attend the Nov. 11 services at the cenotaph.
