Hi Neighbour Festival Parade
Special seating and viewing area
The Transcona Hi Neighbour Committee in association with the Transcona Legion have created a special viewing are so that Transcona Seniors, especially those with mobility issues, can have a front row seat and enjoy watching the Hi Neighbour Festival parade. The Legion have also given permission for use of their washroom facilities which are in easy access of the viewing area.
The Legion will also have a limited number of chairs available but you may want to bring your own seating just in case.
This special area will be mark off and is located at the Southern end of the Legion parking lot. The Legion have given permission for vehicles driven by seniors or by individuals delivering the seniors, can access the parking lot from the back lane coming from the East.
If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact Peter Martin at 204-224-4131 (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details.
Many of the Transcona Seniors have participated in the Hi Neighbour Festival events in the past and it is very difficult for many to try and find a place to enjoy the parade today. We feel that the least we can do in appreciation is to provide an area for them to at least enjoy the parade and the excitement once again.

Standing in Memorial Park Circle is the Cenotaph that
immorializes the names of Transcona men and women
who perished in the First and Second World Wars.
Unfortunately, through the confusion after these wars,
a few of the men who served and did not return were
not included when the Cenotaph was created. This
was only realized within the last two years. Through
the efforts of the Transcona Historical Museum, the
missing names were discovered and the Transcona
Legion with the help of Veteran Affairs Canada installed
new plaques on the Cenotaph.
On Sunday, June 5th, 2011 (Decoration Day), new
plaques were dedicated. The President, Jim Sylvester
had read these names out loud letting everyone know
who they are. There was also a laying of wreaths to
honour all the men and women that made the ultimate
