Cream Can and Wheat
Designer: Don Lynn (Freedom Fabricating, Markerville, AB)
When Built: 1988
It commemorates 100 years of Icelandic settlement and is an acknowledgement to the settlers who founded the district, developed a creamery and developed the agricultural land.
"The designing of the cream can with the grain stalks was to acknowledge the contribution of the creamery and grain farming in the area."
The plaque reads: "1888 - 1988 Dedicated to the pioneers of Markerville and District who prepared the way. 'They did so much with so little.' The best that was in me forever shall live. The sun over darkness prevails." Stephan G. Stephansson
