The Vespra Boys Cenotaph

AWARE News Network

Ontario Parks is honoured to have this WW1 cenotaph in Springwater.

Originally erected in honour of “The Vespra Boys” from Vespra Township who sacrificed so much in the First World War.

Springwater Park was the location of Remembrance Day ceremonies from the 1920’s to the 1950’s.

In 2012 community volunteer groups came forward in a significant way.

Wayne Cameron organized the first Remembrance Day ceremony in the park in over 50 years and continues to do so annually.
