BY SOUTHGREY.CA STAFF — Remembrance Day services will be held throughout the region on both November 10, and the following day, November 11. Local communities will join in the laying of wreaths, showing support for the Canadian Armed Forces, and remembering those who lost their lives for their country. Note that in Grey Highlands, there will also be a Peace Lunch held at the Flesherton Kinplex on November 16 from 11 am - 2 pm. Attendance is free, although a suggested goodwill donation of $8 will cover the cost of lunch. During the event, each table will be asked to hold a discussion of the nature of peace in our current fragile world.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
