Today, we proudly named our Play Park - Corporal Jamie Brendan Murphy Community Park.
Jamie Brendan Murphy was a corporal of the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment Battalion Group (3 RCR Bn Gp). While serving with that unit's 3rd Battalion as part of Operation Athena, he was killed in Kabul, Afghanistan on January 27,2004 . Corporal Murphy was just 26 at the time. Corporal Murphy loved his community, his province and his family, and he wanted to make sure he could contribute the kind of standards we take for granted … to other countries of the world. He wanted to create hope, and he gave his life for those beliefs.By naming the park in memory of Corporal Murphy, the park will be carrying on a legacy of love, hope and justice for generations to come.
