Ukrainian Mural

Mural by Jacques Martel and Doris Charest

Sponsored by Francophones to honor the Ukrainians of Legal, this mural starts on the left hand (east) side with a map of Ukraine.  We then see reminders of Ukraine by the use of the colors, a ship crossing the ocean, Ukrainian dancers, a prayer of gratitude by the farmers, and the name of neighboring communities with significant Ukrainian presence. Finally, we notice the fleurs-de-lis and Ukrainian words of welcome to show the cooperative spirit between the two ethnic groups.

Credit Union

Mural by John Ellenberger

The Credit Union movement in Canada originated in Quebec. This mural presents (from left to right) Fernando Girard, Deanna Stang, Marcel Dubé, and Helen Prefontaine who were all veteran managers of the Legal Credit Union. Fernando Girard was very involved with the cooperative movement with the Francophones of Alberta and he is also the founder of the Francalta Credit Union.
