August 8, 2015 - Hopewell Cape, NB - Metal stabilized on the large 10.5 cm K14 First World War German Cannon. Todd Steeves of TP Downey & Sons (Hillsborough) was able to come to the museum and make the necessary repairs without having to move the cannon. It is fantastic that we were able to find someone local with the skills and equipment necessary to do the job right so that it lasts another 100 years. Todd replaced the center brace and carriage bolts, the 2 brackets above center brace, and fixed the holes on side of cannon facing the road.
JUNE 22, 2015 - Our Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Departure of the 26th Battalion on June 13, 1915 was a roaring success with $5258.20 being raised. This puts the Victory Cannon Campaign at OVER $10000.00 and 2/3 our way to the goal of $15000.00! And to top it all off, the first set of rebuilt wheels arrived just in time for the Commemoration Dinner! Talk about excitement when they rolled in the door!
