62nd Ironworkers Bridge Memorial

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:

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.
