Remembrance Day

Cenotaph Remembrance Service
November 11th
11:00 am
Spirit Square – Memorial Park

 

This is an outdoor service. Those attending the Cenotaph Remembrance Day Service are encouraged to dress warmly and to bring an umbrella in the event of rain or snow.

District of Stewart’s Remembrance Day services are sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion. The Royal Canadian Legion is the largest veteran-based community service organization in Canada and is dedicated to the perpetuation of remembrance of those who served and died in the service of our country and in the care of those who have survived.

Every November 11th, Canadians across the country pause in a silent moment of remembrance for the men and women who served our country during wartime. We honour those who fought for Canada - in the First World War (1914-1918), the Second World War (1939-1945) and the Korean War (1950-1953). More than 1,500,000 Canadians served overseas - more than 100,000 died. They gave their lives and their future so that we may live in peace.
