Due to physical distancing guidelines, Ironworkers Local 97 will host the 62nd Ironworkers Bridge Memorial online via Zoom and Facebook Live.
From Ironworkers Local 97
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our memorial will be different this year.
We will be honouring those who died in the collapse of the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge, in a new physically-distanced format. We ask that you do not attend in person.
Lucien (Lou) Lessard is the last Ironworker survivor and he is committed to attend.
On June 17, 2020 at 1 p.m. PST, please join us on a live-stream of a smaller, more limited event on Zoom or through our Facebook Live. For more information visit the Ironworkers 97 webpage: ironworkerslocal97.com/62nd-ironworkers-bridge-memorial
We will have limited speakers and guests, as well as a wreath procession led by a piper. Following the live-stream, we will be posting a previously recorded video, featuring some of the last survivors.
