Biographical history

To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary (May 8, 1945) of VE Day the City of Edmonton held a week of Remembrance May 4-8, 1995. The Edmonton Remembers week was officially announced by Mayor Jan Reimer on March 24 1995. The events included displays by the Canadian military and the Dutch Canadian Community, a military parade, a mess-style dance hosted by Tommy Banks and the Zen Magus Orchestra at the Edmonton Aviation Museum hangar, an official march past, and services at, the Sir Winston Churchill Square. The Edmonton Journal ran a series of personal WWII stories throughout April and May. Residents were invited to donate items historically valuable to the celebration.
