The Niagara-on-the-Lake cenotaph needs your help.
One of NOTL’s most recognizable landmarks is in desperate need of restoration and the cenotaph committee is $28,000 short of the $81,000 that is needed by Sept. 15 to complete the work in 2023.
The committee, a partnership between the town and the Legion, is calling the community to action, hoping that those who already have pledged donations – and those who haven’t yet done so – will contribute immediately.
So far, the committee has amassed $53,000 to restore the 101-year-old cenotaph and memorial clock tower.
It commemorates the residents of Niagara-on-the-Lake who were killed in action during the two world wars.
Donations can be made in person at the town administration offices at 1593 Four Mile Creek Rd. or the Canadian Legion Branch 124 at 410 King St., by mail to 1593 Four Mile Creek Rd., Box 1030, Virgil ON, L0S 1T0, or online at notl.com/recreation-events/community-initiatives-events.
Anyone who donates $25 or above will be issued a tax receipt.
