The committee sketched the following plan with the concurrence of the Scout Brigade: At 11:00 on Saturday morning, the plaque will be unveiled in Fort George using Ron Dale's mobile plaque stand with curtains. This will be a brief ceremony as the Scouts will be present. Extended speeches will wait until the banquet that evening. On Sunday, WJ'55 participants will be invited to view the final battle between 09:30 and 10:30. Parking and Fort entrance arrangements will have to be made with Ron Dale.
The committee discussed including promotional information about the WJ'55 anniversary crest in the Scout Bridge registration package. The registration package goes out at the end of February. The committee will have to have materials ready by that time. The committee will also make WJ'55 participants aware of the opportunity to order Scout Brigade crests.
Other program ideas and opportunities discussed:
- The Niagara Wine Festival will be on during the event.
- Post signs marking the location of various parts of the original WJ'55 campsite.
- Bury a time capsule. These can be easily made by solvent welding ends on a large diameter plastic water pipe.
