SASKATCHEWAN ARCHIVES COMMEMORATES REMEMBRANCE DAY
Minister responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Bill Hutchinson will join the Saskatchewan Archives for a public Remembrance Day event in honour of Saskatchewan's veterans on Thursday, November 4, 2010.
"For more than a hundred years, regular and reserve units of the Canadian Forces together with members of the RCMP have served our great nation in theatres of war and peacekeeping operations around the world," Hutchinson said. "I would like to invite members of the public to come to Government House and explore some of these conflicts from a uniquely Saskatchewan perspective."
Members of the public are invited to attend the event which starts at 7 p.m. in the Sir Richard Lake Hall at Government House. The evening will feature readings, photographs and a short film relating to Saskatchewan involvement in several conflicts over the last century with material from the Saskatchewan Archives' permanent collection.
"The Saskatchewan Archives is very excited for the opportunity to share the words and images of Saskatchewan's wartime experience preserved through the provinces documentary heritage," Provincial Archivist Linda McIntyre said.
Additional exhibits from the holdings of the Saskatchewan Archives will be on display for public viewing after the formal program.
