Ground-Breaking Ceremony

June 17, 2017

Small Arms Inspection Building

1352 Lakeshore Rd. E,

Mississauga, ON L5E 1E9

On June 17th, the Small Arms Society celebrated a huge step in our journey at the official ground-breaking ceremony. The event was held on the grounds of the building, officiated by Mayor Bonnie Crombie, Ward I Councillor Jim Tovey, MP Sven Spengemann, and MPP Minister of Finance Charles Sousa.

 

The ceremony included the planting of three historic Vimy Oak trees - each grown from acorns collected at Vimy Ridge. They represent a poignant connection to the people who worked at the Small Arms Building and their contribution to the war effort.

 

A huge thank you for the support of the City of Mississauga and our volunteers for all their help in hosting a fantastic event. We hope you enjoyed this milestone moment!
