In 2018, The Royal Winnipeg Rifles will commemorate 135 years of service to Canada. In addition, 2018 will mark 100 years since the end of the First World War in which the Rifles made huge sacrifices and contributions to Canada’s war effort.
To mark these two historic events, The Royal Winnipeg Rifles Foundation is offering individuals, organizations and corporations an opportunity to leave a legacy by purchasing a Legacy Stone for permanent emplacement at the Rifles Memorial at Vimy Ridge Memorial Park in Winnipeg. Legacy Stones will be made of granite and emplaced at the foot of the newly renovated Rifles Memorial for public viewing.
Purchasing a Legacy Stone for emplacement will provide a lasting legacy to you, a friend or relative as a reminder of your or their service or support to The Royal Winnipeg Rifles, as a memorial to a friend, relative or veteran, as a memory to the sacrifices made by those who served Canada with the Rifles or as a permanent reminder of the sacrifices made by Manitoba’s longest serving infantry regiment.
