Exhibit - 2004
Bay Chaleur Military Museum, New Richmond, Quebec Canada
Bay Chaleur Military Museum
This museum and its exhibits are the fruits of the labour of an impressive number of volunteers, and support from many segments of the communities in the surrounding area, be they merchants, service clubs, municipal governments or citizens at large.
The overall credit must be given to Ray Smith, who, among other things, acted as president and secretary of the planning committee. Without his leadership and dedication, the project would never have reached a successful conclusion.
It was because of his strong conviction that a completed project was possible, his ability to organize and carry out his plans, and his success in recruiting a large number of willing and able volunteers, that the building was restored to its present state, and the grounds were landscaped and decorated. To Ray we owe our sincere thanks.
