The City of Windsor is making several plans to remember Queen Elizabeth II.

City officials are working with All Saints’ Anglican Church at City Hall Square for a public memorial service. It has been customary for All Saints’ to host such a gathering at the passing of monarchs and in conjunction with the City of Windsor. This tradition will continue for Queen Elizabeth II.

They are also making for a Public Screening of the Funeral proceedings, with date, time and location to be determined.

They are preparing a Book of Condolences which will be available in the coming week in the Lobby of City Hall. Residents will be invited to come and sign and leave messages of condolence in the book. A copy will be kept in the City of Windsor archives. A copy will be sent on to the Commonwealth. A copy will be digitized for the Museum Windsor database. Windsor Police will provide a ceremonial honour guard for the book at City Hall. In addition, they are reaching out to local school boards encouraging youth and schools to submit artwork honouring Queen Elizabeth for inclusion in the Book of Condolences.

Street pole banners will go up in the coming week in neighbourhoods across the City, through BIAs, and along the along the waterfront and the Mayor’s office is working with Parks to develop new commemorative signage to re-dedicate the Queen Elizabeth II Sunken Gardens at Jackson Park. This will be installed in the coming weeks.
