COE HILL — Col. Donald J. Vance, author of “Remembering the Men of North Hastings Killed in the Great War,” will speak at the Coe Hill Legion on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010 at noon.

His research brings to life the names engraved on the cenotaphs in Coe Hill, Bancroft and Glen Alda and will be a timely reminder of their ultimate sacrifice as communities prepare for Remembrance Day Nov. 11.

Lunch is provided at the event, sponsored by the Friends of the Wollaston-Limerick Library.

Here’s some history about Private William Jackson of the Royal Canadian Regiment. He was born in St. Ola, and was buried in the Salem Pioneer Cemetery.
