To honour the veterans of World War 1, the Town of Main Brook has built a new memorial. The Caribou war memorials are well known in Newfoundland and the newest memorial has been constructed in Main Brook.
To commemorate Newfoundland and Labradors accomplishments and sacrifices in World War 1, five bronze Caribou memorials were built throughout France and Belgium after the war. These five sites are known as the Trail of the Caribou.
With two other bronze Caribou memorials in both St. John’s and Corner Brook, the newest addition in Main Brook is an extension to the provincial trail here in Newfoundland!
This memorial will also aid in driving visitors to Main Brook, allowing for an increase in tourism. Visitors to the memorial will be able to sign their name in a visitor book!
The IGA is very proud to have helped in the funding of this monument this past year!
