2014 marked the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy during the Second World War. In June of 2014, students from Nantyr Shores Secondary School had the opportunity to travel to Normandy, France to take part in the very special D-Day ceremonies. For many, this trip was both eye-opening and life-altering. From making memories and a life-long bond with their fellow travellers to reflections on what life would have been like for soldiers not much older than themselves, these students demonstrate the importance and a true understanding of the meaning of "Lest We Forget". The journey was heavily supported by many organizations within the Innisfil community. The students that participated on the trip were able to share some of their memories and experiences with Our Stories Innisfil. The first voice you hear is that of Karen McLeod, teacher and trip organizer. She asks the students to talk about their fun memories of fundraising and about how the community supported the students' efforts to make the trip a reality. Sean talks about students completing the Polar Bear Dip, there is an image of two students plunging into the icy water surrounded by a cheering crowd. Paige Stephens explains that ICE Corp, a local Innisfil organization who helped to plan the Polar Bear Dip allowed the students to jump for free and then donated a large portion of funds raised to Team D-Day. Proceeds from the Innisfil Arts, Culture Heritage Council event Dinner in White were also donated to the Team D-Day efforts. Donations were also received form Sandy Cove Acres, Innisfil's retirement community. The students ran a Ford Test Drive event at the school, in partnership with Ford. The community came out to test drive new vehicles and for every test drive completed, Ford donated to the cause. Cassidy explains that the community really rallied behind the students for the cause of learning, honouring and celebrating the veterans through this trip. Principal Alberto Bernardi asked the students how they felt knowing the community had given them so much support. Paige and Cassidy explain that they were honoured and touched by the support.
