Jericho Monument Dedication this Sunday


Jericho SeaplaneThe first time I wrote about the Jericho Marginal Wharf, I had no idea that the area once served as a military base for seaplanes. Larry from YatterMatters was so kind as to provide some of that background information in the comments.

This Sunday, as part of the BC150 celebrations, will see the dedication of the Jericho Beach Station Monument and Wallace Field Plaque:

To commemorate the historical significance to Greater Vancouver and B.C. of the former RCAF Flying Boat Station and Military Camp at Jericho Beach in Vancouver.

The ceremony will take place this Sunday, from 1-2.30pm at Jericho Beach Park near the sailing club.
