I will remember

For me, Remembrance Day is one of the most important days to recognize.

For me, Remembrance Day is one of the most important days to recognize. It ensures that we never forget our past and the people who fought and sacrificed at unimaginable lengths to keep our Country free.

For me, Remembrance Day ceremonies are profound, gathering crowds of people together to honour loved ones, friends, and those who fought in one collective moment of silence.

For me, Remembrance Day is needed, as the hustle and bustle of busy daily life can usually overcome the thoughts and the reasons of why we are here and the freedoms that we have.

For me, Remembrance Day ceremonies are a way to show my children the importance of what it all means, and to make sure we show our respect.

Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held in Sparwood on November 11th, at 11:00 a.m. at the Cenotaph. On November 11th, In Elkford the Remembrance Day Ceremony will begin at the Alliance Church, which is located on 1803 Alpine Way. Following the service at 10:45 am, people will march to the cenotaph located outside the District Municipal Office. The cenotaph program will begin at 11:00 am and will be followed by a lunch at the Union Hall. Everyone is welcome to attend.
