Mr. Rulon E. Hicken, the Principle of the High School concluded his remarks by saying, “ then let these trees planted in loving and patriotic hands, and nurtured by this virgin soil, the sunshine and the dews of heaven, grow to be fitting monuments to the wisdom and foresight of those Pioneer Canadian Statesmen, whose memory we love to honor, “ The Fathers of Confederation”..
