Hundreds gather at Mac Campus to remember

Fri, 2016-11-11 15:25

People prone to viewing the world in symbolic terms would have enjoyed yesterday’s Remembrance Day ceremony at Macdonald Campus. Hundreds of people stood in a tight circle around the permanent War Memorial in front of the Raymond Building. This human circle was itself ringed by the 44 oak trees that line Memorial Field. These oak trees were planted in 1931 to honour the supreme sacrifice of 34 young men from Macdonald College and Macdonald College High School who lost their lives in World War I.
