Brockville - Memorial Civic Centre

 

Location:  United Counties of Leeds and Grenville

N 44.60986   W -75.69988

100 Magedoma Boulevard, beside St. Lawrence College.

 

This memorial is a bronze Roll of Honor plaque found inside the Brockville Memorial Civic Centre, home to an 1800 seat arena,  large community hall and recreation facilities.   This building was constructed in 1981, but it is the second facility to bear the name, the previous building was located on Gilmour Street.  The first Memorial Centre was started soon after World War II and finally opened in 1951.  Unfortunately the ground that the Memorial Centre was built on was unstable and damage to the building was becoming apparent. In January of 1978, after a snow storm, the roof collapsed. It was decided that the best course of action was to tear down what was left of the building.

The current Memorial Civic Centre serves the community year-round with a busy arena in the winter and festivals throughout the summer months.  

The Roll of Honor plaque was first installed in the original building and then moved here when this centre was opened in 1981.  This is the first thing everyone sees when they step inside the Memorial Civic Centre.  The names of those brave men who died in the two World Wars are forever remembered on this historic plaque.

*Thank you to Louise Bellec for the photos.
