Remembrance Day - November 11, 2011 - Don't Forget!
Here's a reminder about the various services being held on Remembrance Day in North Vancouver and West Vancouver. Remembrance Day is a service in honour of our Veterans and those currently serving in the Canadian Armed Forces. This is an annual community event, all members of the public welcome. This is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to our fallen soldiers, celebrate the gift of freedom, listen to the words of the poem, In Flanders Fields, give 2 minutes silence, and gather with friends and family of the community.
I have a special connection with Remembrance Day, as my grandfather fought in Gallipoli during the Great War, as part of the Royal Navy, and my father manned a mine sweeper during World War II, also with the Royal Navy.
