Grandin Centennial Mosaic Unveiled

Without television media present at the event, this is a Yegventures exclusive. Grandin School turned 100 in 2015 and celebrated the centennial with festivities, open house, and the unveiling of a centennial mosaic. The event began with an aboriginal dance, formal speeches by dignitaries, barbecue, and open house tours of the school in the Grandin community.

  • Love this beautiful piece of art Lincoln. Thanks for exposing Edmontons great creative and artistic spirit #yegexpo

  • So according to Joan Carr there was “nothing but prairie and wilderness” for the pioneers to encounter? I guess she doesn’t realize the Cree were already here. Or is she counting them as part of that “wilderness” she mentioned in her speech? #yegexpo

    • Well, the Cree didn’t have permanent settlements but I get what you mean. Maybe her speech was written by students? haha. jk
