Postcards from the Front

In early September, a very special postcard will be sent to each of about 350 Kingston-Frontenac households. Each card will contain the name of a soldier or nursing sister whose family once lived in that house.

Who were those former residents? And what happened to them? The postcard will invite the current resident to find out.
