Stewart Remembers

POSTED: November 6, 2014 | Mayors Blog

As we approach Remembrance Day we honour and remember the service and sacrifice of more than one and a half million Canadians. We honour those who lost their lives in service and our veterans who so bravely served. This is also a time to pay tribute to the important and on-going role of those who serve our country through military service today. On the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th hour, we in Stewart join more than 2,000 cities towns and villages across Canada at memorials. In this time of remembrance we say thank you to our veterans, to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and to our active service men and women. It is hoped that by remembering, we will do all we can to strive for peace.

In Gratitude of Silence

By: Debbie Holick

Silent now the soldiers sleep, their tales long laid to rest.

I knew them not yet still I weep and place a poppy o'er my breast.

They were husbands, brothers, fathers, sons; so valiantly they fought.

On shores stained red,on hands and knees; it was our freedom that they sought.

Couageously they stood their ground but freedom carries a cost.

Thousands of men were wounded and countless lives were lost.

So in gratitude of silence and all those who have served, sleep now, you have earned it.

Your peace is well deserved.


The Remembrance Day service is always held on November 11, at 11 a.m., at the Cenotaph.
