Historic Sites of Manitoba: Berbank Memorial Church (Municipality of Grassland)

In 1919, the school districts of Bertha and Riverbank united to build a church as a memorial to four men, Jack Fisher, Harry Hardwick, Harry Martin, and Cecil Minary who gave their lives in the First World War. The church, in what is now the Municipality of Grassland, served as a place of worship and creation until it closed in 1966. In 1944, the people of the Berbank district dedicated a plaque in front of the church to local pioneers and those who served in the First World War, Second World War, Korean War, and peacekeeping.
