LEST WE FORGET. REMEMBRANCE DAY CEREMONIES TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY
11/10/2017 7:50:46 AM


The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month is when Canada, alongside dozens of other countries, marks Remembrance Day, honouring those who fought for our freedom.

On that day in 1918, an armistice was signed by Germany and the alliance nations, ending hostilities during the First World War.

On Saturday, Remembrance Day not only honours soldiers and military personnel who fought and died in the Great War, but in subsequent wars and conflicts. Canadians also remember those who are serving in current missions around the world. Chair of the Simcoe Legion John Charleau is hoping to see people come out and remember.

    A parade leading to Norfolk's war memorial Carrilon Tower, begins at 10:30-am.

The official ceremony will commence at 10:45.
