Where would the Hazelwood Honor Board go?

There are District Leaders meeting minutes that state that should the Hazelwood Honor Board be removed the Hazelwood and Churchill District would go to Hazelwood North School or the Public Hall across the road from it and ask them to have the honor of housing and protecting this board.

The main reasons for this is three fold.
  • The first being that the reason for this was that Churchill was not even ‘born’ when those people went to war. These pioneers fought for Hazelwood, not Churchill as Churchill was not even invented then. The Churchill Township / residental area was Hazelwood.

  • The second being that among the ‘Hazelwood’ generations (older members especially) and their families their is animosity still towards the political of ‘the day’ when the implanted town became known as Churchill. Effectively honoring a politician rather than honoring those generations of pioneers who changed the land for grazing.
  • Just because some members in a ‘towns’ population thinks that they have the numbers therefor what they so happens is not the case. What this attitude is is political abuse of percieved power and down right abuse. Hazelwood and the generational ties to the area must be allowed a fair and equal voice. Opinions are always simmering below the surface.

The District Leaders comments re The Honor Rolls condition

For some strange reason Allen thought that the Honor Board was in a terrible state of repair.  Hence the reason for Allens the original suggestion to remove the Hazelwood Honor Roll.  No wonder John Holt man was indifferent and Mel Gibbs was concerned. To let this Honor Roll go to the down the Gurgler would be an extreme act of dishonor to those families and the people (N.O.K) on the Honor Board.
