Each Saturday, we’ll share some reflections from our past student participants about the impact of their visit to Vimy Ridge and other sites of the First World War.
Janice Noble participated in Encounters with Canada in Ottawa during Vimy Week 2015, in the Vimy Foundation’s program Vimy: Canada’s Coming of Age. She writes:
“This week was very special to me for many reasons. My great uncle fought at Vimy and died near Arras in June 1918. It was an honour to be able to come to this week at EWC. I had the chance to speak at the Vimy Commemorative Ceremony, which was also an honour. This week was equally incredible because I had the chance to make new friends from all across Canada. I now know people from nearly every province!” – Janice Noble, Nova Scotia, EWC 2015
