Honoring Our Local Veterans 

About 

We are committed to teaching our community, especially future generations, the incredible contributions and the role of many Canadians (including Billy Bishop) who sacrificed and served to preserve our freedom. It is our goal to help people remember, respect, and honor the sacrifices that have been made by our military.

Each year the Museum pays tribute to a number of Owen Sound and Grey & Bruce County Veterans. Their biographic information is on display at the Heritage Mall in December until early January.  

2020's Honouring Our Local Veterans ceremony was LIVE on Rogerstv, facebook and our youtube on Sunday, October 25th starting at 2 pm. Please feel free to share the video with you friends and family! Enjoy and lest we forget! 

If you are a Veteran or know a Veteran that you would like to nominate for our Honouring Our Local Veterans Program, please print off a Veteran's Survey to fill in and return to the Museum.
