Commemorative City Programs

Commemorative Programs in the City of Armstrong gives individuals and groups the opportunity to recognize or remember people that have helped shape the fabric of our community.

Through these programs we recognize the work, effort, and contributions made by remarkable people that have enhanced our lives, our city, and our families. The City of Armstrong invites individuals, groups of individuals, businesses or organizations to participate in these legacy programs and pay respect to those who have made a positive impact through thought, word, and deed.

Commemorative Tree Program

Established in 1998, the Commemorative Tree Program was created so that people could have the opportunity to recognize someone special with the planting of a tree and commemorative plaque. All residents, visitors, and guests are invited to participate in this living legacy program. The City of Armstrong will take great pleasure maintaining the trees and cairn to commemorate the positive influence of our neighbours and friends.

Community Bench Program

The Community Bench Program provides a means to dedicate, and maintain City benches in recognition of the contributions of people or to commemorate special events or occasions. Individuals, groups of individuals (such as families), businesses, and other organizations may make a financial contribution towards the community bench program which includes a plaque indicating the donor(s) and the dedication. Placement of benches will be determined on an individual basis, with consultation occurring between the donor(s) and City staff, and other agencies as needed. Staff will endeavour to place benches in requested areas.

($1,700 Donation)

Partial Donations

Should you wish to make a partial donation towards a bench and plaque. Other donors will have the option to contribute the remainder of the amount towards the same bench. In the event of multiple donors, and if required, multiple plaques may be used to commemorate the individual dedications, and costs split between the donors. Each additional plaque adds $300 to the required donation.
