Honourary Street Names

RECOGNIZATION OF WWII VETERANS RESIDING IN TRANSCONA

This year, is the 75th Anniversary to the end of World War II, Transcona had a significant number of men lost to this war-over 40 never returned home.  Our Branch has actively remembered our fallen at our Decoration Day in June and our Remembrance Day Service.

Comrade Peter Martin, from our Branch, has been working with members of our Community to         ensure “We Never Forget” our Veterans.

This group has worked on a project researching the names of Veterans who live within our Community and who served during WWII. The goal is to have a Honourary Street named        after them.  We encourage everyone to go about the community to view this special tribute.

Today Transcona has 8 Honourary Street Names with a new one submitted to the City for consideration.
