Trapper Creek Community Services
Trapper Creek Community Services plans to build a memorial wall at the Trapper Creek cemetery. Names will be added to the wall to remember citizens who resided in the Trapper Creek area for about 5 years or more and have died. The wall will be concrete and the names will be cut into steel plates that are 4x4ft. Names will be 1 inch high. There will be a roof over the wall to protect the name plates and viewers during inclement weather.
There will be a nomination committee to assure that the names submitted are valid candidates for the memorial wall. They will also assist in the collection of biographical information for the candidates. This information will be recorded in a book (both paper & digital) to include photos where possible and will be kept at the library for public viewing. In addition biographical information will be collected on future candidates that are currently alive and either currently live in Trapper Creek or have moved. This will enable the committee to add names to the wall in the future and not have a lot of missed names.
The initial working list is below. The community is requested to assist by nominating qualified candidates that have been missed. Also, we need biographical information on candidates so please submit any information that you might know about the candidates. If you know family of the candidates see if you can contact them for photos (preferably of when they were in Trapper Creek).
It is expected to have the wall constructed and the names on it before the end of summer. Help us make a memorial that will make everyone proud.
Here is a working list, please help with spelling corrections, furnish missing first or last names, correct us if they still survive and nominate names that we do not have on the list. Your help is appreciated.
