Despite the restraints caused by Covid19, we had a meaningful ceremony at the Cenotaph on November 11th.
Such a venture requires the input and cooperation of many agencies and volunteers too many to name individually here.
Whether a Legion member, a community service, an organization or business, the social media, a musical group, an independent volunteer, one of the community at large, a participant at the Cenotaph or a viewer of the live streaming, all are deserving of the gratitude, kudos, and heartfelt thanks of the Legion and especially Veterans.
A special thanks to those who made a donation to the Poppy Fund by a monitary donation in exchange for a Poppy or a memorial wreath.
Thank you all. Be safe.
Lest We Forget.
Promoting Remembrance is part of The Royal Canadian Legion’s mission and has been one of our principal objectives since our inception. The Legion inspires Canadians to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and to honour those who served and continue to serve today. Remembrance is a year-long commitment and we endeavour to promote it through a number of programs, services and resources.
Thank you to Jane Petch for sending this write up about this beautiful song and video from her brother, Tony Massy who lives in Cobble Hill. Much of it features the Remembrance Day celebrations on Salt Spring.
