Here is a Canada Day 2016 photo album of the opening ceremony that was attended by a crowd, most of whom remembered the original iconic structure, the Sylvan Lake mayor and council, Rotary Club officials, and members of the RCMP detachment. Susan (fundraiser-in-chief) and Bob (designer-in-chief) Samson, and a few “brick people” who are now prematurely engraved in stone are present in the throng too.
