Canadian Red Cross Sudbury branch is also celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
“A 100-year celebration is a once-in-a-lifetime event,” said Harvey Wyers, Northern Ontario Regional Chair for the Canadian Red Cross, in a press release. “We grew as Sudbury grew and now we can celebrate this together.”
The Sudbury Branch, which began in response to World War I, has grown considerably in its work to assist the community.
