Danger Tree Memorial Site Soldier Unveiling

Join the Forget-Me-Not Committee and Grenfell Campus as we unveil the second sculpture of the Danger Tree installation, the sculpture of First World War soldier Pte. Hugh McWhirter by Memorial University alumnus Mr. Morgan McDonald. A reception with special guests The Ennis Sisters will follow the unveiling. This event is open to the public.

For many who survived that fateful morning on July 1, 1916, the Danger Tree, the lone reference point on a battle-scarred ground, garnered a place of reverence.
