Memorial Maples at the Labyrinth

We were very pleased to be called recently by the Councillor responsible for the Veterans Tree Program in Carleton Place looking for locations to plant 93 Autumn Blaze maple trees. We could have two of these for the Labyrinth with only one condition. There would be a plaque with the name of the veteran, dates and other information - a granite marker placed flush with the ground.

We think the beautiful autumn trees will make a lovely addition to the labyrinth.  The symbol of a labyrinth is a symbol of peace and remembering veterans is a way to reinforce the message  that we do remember and we do not want war to happen again.

When digging the hole for the tree a very large rock was uncovered and removed from the hole. We asked it if could be placed over close to the area where our Welcome Sign will be installed - and ever obliging it was picked up by the fork truck and lifted into place. Amazing!!
A perfect fall day for planting!
