Centennial College’s Story Arts Centre hosted a Remembrance Day service last Friday, where students, faculty, and community members alike came together to listen to the testimonies of two Second World War veterans and one current sub-lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Navy, currently in his 23rd year of active service.
Bob Middleton has a message for young journalists: tell the stories of veterans before those stories are lost.
Barbara Trendos, author of the book “Survival”, also attended this year’s ceremony at the Carlaw Avenue campus in East York. Her book recounts the harrowing story of her father, Flight Lieutenant Albert Wallace, currently 98 years old. Wallace was unable to attend the event, for health reasons.
