This first Royal Canadian Legion Branch 66 cenotaph was located beside where the Ponoka Senior’s Drop-In Centre now stands, and was officially dedicated on June 22, 1961. Following the opening of the present Highway 2 location of the Legion Branch 66 facility on Sept. 9, 1990 plans were later made to re-locate the cenotaph outside of the new location, and it was officially dedicated on Sept. 1, 2002. On Nov. 11th hundreds of Legion members, veterans, military, air cadets, families, and special guests from throughout the town and county and beyond have faithfully gathered at this memorial to pay tribute to our brave soldiers of both yesterday and today.
