Speaker

Eleanor Friesen 

fbcevent_EleanorFriesenEleanor Palmer Friesen, a teacher for 32 years [now retired], continues to value education and to pursue learning opportunities, both informal and formal. She was a member of First Baptist Church for twenty two years and recalls those years with great pleasure.

In April 2017, Eleanor, accompanied by family members, travelled to northern France to attend the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Her pilgrimage to France, planned for many years, was in recognition of her grandfather John Palmer who fought with the Canadian Corps at Vimy. It was a momentous experience for Eleanor and her family to gather with 25 000 other Canadians on the famous ridge that courageous young Canadians fought and died to capture a century before. Eleanor looks forward to sharing that experience with the Achievers.
