    Default The Battle of Vimy Ridge April 9, 1917

    April 9, 1917. One hundred years ago today.

    Remembering three family members.

    Roy, 25 years old. Killed in action on the first day of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Buried at Ecoivres Military Cemetery, Pas de Calais, France.

    Pat, 27 years old. Wounded in Europe and gassed at the Battle of Vimy Ridge, but able to return home to Canada and raise a family.

    Ewart, 19 years old. His name, along with over 11,000 fellow Canadian soldiers listed as "missing, presumed dead' in France during WWI, is inscribed on the ramparts of the Vimy memorial.

    Yes, very much so!

    The way of life we all enjoy today, in both Canada and the U.S., came at a very high price.
    2014 Upgrades!: 24x40 sugarhouse & 30"x10' Lapierre welded pans, wood fired w/ forced draft, homemade hood & preheater
    400 taps- half on gravity 5/16, half on gravity 3/16
    Airablo R.O. machine - in the house basement!
    Ford F-350 4x4 sap gatherer
    An assortment of barrels, cage tanks & bulk tanks- with one operational for cooling/holding concentrate
    And a few puzzled neighbors...
