Maple trees planted at this site commemorate the lives lost by citizens of Carleton Place as a result of military service during WWI, WWII, and Korea. With 94 names on our Cenotaph, the same corresponding numbers of trees have been planted, collectively, at each Carleton Place school. Each tree represents a living memorial to a specific victim of war.
Lest We Forget
It is our eternal hope that his list never grows, but these trees flourish and reach for the Heavens.
