The Battle of Vimy Ridge in northern France, April 9th to 12th, 1917 is considered to be one of the defining events in Canada's history. Lieutenant Leslie H. Miller, a soldier with the Canadian Expeditionary Force (1914-1919), sent acorns home to Canada that he had gathered up after the Battle of Vimy Ridge, April 1917. These acorns are now large majestic oaks that are growing on his former farm, today the home of the Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church, in Ontario.
The Vimy Oaks Legacy Corporation is a not-for-profit corporation made up of volunteers promoting the memory and legacy of Canadians who fought in the First World War through the planting of "Vimy Oak" saplings from Lieutenant Miller's farm. Saplings are available for sale at vimyoakslegacy.ca.
A Vimy Oak was planted at the Port Rowan Legion in April, 2017, in honour of the Norfolk County soldiers who fought at Vimy Ridge. The Norfolk 150 Celebration of Culture is honoured to include a concert at the Port Rowan Legion in celebration of this meaningful commemoration.
