Remembering with words
Crescent Collegiate student Tia Murphy-Rowe won first place in the Royal Canadian Legion Remembrance Day Poetry Contest. The Green’s Harbour native’s winning entry, “A Thank-you Letter from a 17-year-old,” offers a personal take on the act of remembrance and why it’s something we should do. She will travel to Europe in July on an eight-day trip to visit sites forever linked to the First World War. Pictured making a presentation to the Grade 12 student is George Brown from Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 39.
