A Family Tribute

One of the most touching stories of our Polo Park event was of Fallen Hero David Stranger. Researched and commissioned by the Calvin Christian School classes, this aboriginal soldier hailed from Manitoba and lost his life in the First World War. To our shock, family members of the fallen happened to be at Polo Park and saw the memorial. After reaching out to some of the family members, the great-grandson of STRANGER came down in full traditional clothing to pose for pictures with the print. This story was also picked up by the television network APTN on their national news broadcast. Below is a link to the news story of Chris (Great-Grandson) for your viewing. Being able to reach out to the family members of our fallen and helping each individual feel pride for their families’ sacrifice is a top priority for our foundation.
