Administrative history

The Dogwood Veterans Group is a seniors group at the Dogwood Pavilion seniors centre for veterans of the Second World War and the Korean War. The Group sets up the display, Veterans on Parade, at the Dogwood Pavilion where the public and school children visit and learn about the wartime experiences of veterans. The Group also sells Remembrance Day poppies around Coquitlam.

The Government of Canada declared 2005 the Year of the Veteran. In honour of the occasion the Dogwood Veterans Group collected and self-published personal narratives. Later, other narratives were collected and published by Veterans Affairs Canada.
