At this time of year, millions of people pay their deep respect to Canadian Veterans who have fallen in the service of our great nation.
Your Legion was created in part to promote remembrance. The Legion is also very committed to ensuring that the tradition of remembrance remains relevant to younger generations. The school children will be placing candles on military crosses at the cemetery on November 8. The candle lighting will take place at 6 pm on November 10.
The Legion also holds a creative art and writing contest. Every year over 100,000 students across Canada honour Canada’s Veterans with their incredible submissions.
It’s easy to take our freedoms for granted. The Legion has a wonderful photograph display of all the Pender Island people who went off to serve their country. Take a moment to look at their names on Remembrance Day. People can remember individually - by wearing a poppy close to our hearts.
We will remember them.
