The Township of Guelph/Eramosa’s Heritage Committee has put together a publication titled “Remembering the Fallen”, a tribute to the soldiers remembered on the Rockwood Cenotaph. The booklet includes a biography of each soldier identified on the Rockwood Cenotaph. If you’re interested in obtaining a copy, members of the Heritage Committee will be handing them out at the Service, free of charge. Copies will also be available at the Township’s Municipal Office.
Please note, the Ministry of Transportation and County of Wellington have authorized the Township of Guelph/Eramosa to temporarily close a portion of Highway No. 7, between Fourth Line (Wellington County Road 44) to Milton/Eramosa Townline in the Township of Guelph/Eramosa during the Service. In addition, there will be temporary road closures on local streets surrounding the cenotaph during the Service. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
