Ninety-five new engraved memory stones have been installed on the OPP Pathway of Memories.
They were unveiled at a ceremony yesterday at OPP General Headquarters in Orillia.
The Pathway pays tribute to current and former OPP members and teams, their families, as well as organizations.
The engraved memory stones are donated, with funds raised going to the OPP Youth Foundation.
Director Dave Osbourne says the foundation provides opportunities for Ontario youth, such as OPP youth camps and bursaries. Osbourne says “recipients are chosen by OPP officers who feel will benefit from the funds.” There’s also a separate project that puts a teddy bear in each cruiser.
The Pathway of Memories was first unveiled in 2018 where the first 226 memory stones were initially donated and viewed for the first time.
It’s open for public viewing on the terrace of the front lawn at General Headquarter at 777 Memorial Avenue, Ontario.
