On Monday, August 4, 2014 the community unveiled a life-size bronze statue of Strathroy native General Sir Arthur Currie, thanks to the dedicated efforts of the General Sir Arthur Currie Memorial Project – a volunteer committee that successfully raised about $130,000 for the project over the past four years.
The memorial, consisting of an inscribed granite base and a life-size bronze figure of Currie sculpted by renowned Canadian artist Adrienne Alison, was placed in front of Museum Strathroy-Caradoc next to the cenotaph memorial on Frank St. in Strathroy.
In order to mark the occasion of the unveiling on August 4, the volunteer project steering committee coordinated a community celebration event.
