Program for Cuthbert Grant Memorial Marker

Good morning all, had a great email conversation with a gentleman from Parks Canada this morning as I will be volunteering at FRIGHT AT THE FORT and he was most proud to indicate that Parks Canada supports the work of the Historic sites and Monuments Board of Canada which has designed CUTHBERT GRANT as a NATIONAL HISTORIC PERSON.
