The Bell Memorial plaque is being returned to its rightful home this month, and we’re having a community BBQ to celebrate this cherished piece of Brantford’s heritage. The Plaque is Back celebration and BBQ is scheduled for Thursday, September 19 from 11am to 1pm. Greetings and remarks will take place at 11:15am.
The century old historic plaque was stolen in March 2019 and recovered shortly thereafter by Brantford Police. The plaque describes the work of Walter S. Allward for the Bell Memorial, and is dated from 1917. It had remained in place for nearly 102 years before the theft.
This free community event, sponsored by Bell Canada, will include food from Goo’s Catering as well as treats from Sweet Bakery. Enjoy live music by PYNX Production and set up on one of our picnic tables in Bell Memorial Park to enjoy your meal. Everyone is welcome to attend.
