On Nov. 6 from noon to 4 p.m., Rutherford House welcomes you to remember and celebrate the courageous Canadian men and women of the Great War, both at war and on the home front.

Learn about a time in our history including information tidbits like what families and community groups put in the comfort packages sent overseas to the soldiers, or what particular sock pattern was used to knit the soldiers socks.

You can also enjoy a sampling of appetizing historic recipes from that time period, listen to music by Edmonton piper Chris Arbter commemorating the Canadian and British bagpipers who rallied the troops and led them into battle. Edmonton’s fifth Poet Laureate, Mary Pinkoski, and actor Ben Stevens will also be at the event reciting poems about and from the Great War.
