The Project is to raise a statue of Strathroy's native son, Arthur Currie. It will form a focus for the public meeting areas of Strathroy, be a reminder of how a simple farm lad rose to become the commander of Canada's WW1 forces and a leading educator, and be an inspiration to Canadians.
The life-sized bronze statue costs in excess of $100,000. Additional money is needed to prepare and put in place a suitable base and groundwork. A place to register the donors names is also needed. The Town of Strathroy Caradoc has approved the project and the statue will remain the property of the town.
