Each year, in November, many special events take place to commemorate Veterans’ Week (November 5th to 11th) as well as Remembrance Day.  This is a time to honour the courage, sacrifice, and service given by so many Canadians over the years.  Our veterans could be our grandfathers, our fathers, our mothers, our brothers, our sisters, our neighbours…

We can remember and honour our Veterans, past and present, by: wearing a poppy, attending local Remembrance Day ceremonies, thanking a veteran by sending a “postcard for peace”, teaching our children about Remembrance Day, reading a “remembrance newspaper” written especially for school children Kindergarten – Grade 7 and up, talking with a relative or friend who serves or served with the Canadian Armed Forces, viewing “Heroes Remember” videos, planting a “Garden of Remembrance”.   Specific information about these activities can be found on the Veterans Affairs website.  In addition, you can buy a poppy in our Gift Shop when you come for a visit, and also, you can go to our Heritage Air Park to see the Heritage Stones that honour loved ones’ service.
