Outdoor Remembrance events make a partial comeback this year

Thank you veterans

BY SOUTHGREY.CA STAFF — Although Remembrance ceremonies will still not look entirely normal this year, they won't be entirely virtual either. Local outdoor events will take place but you may want to stay home, regardless.

Remembrance Day is about showing our respect and gratitude to the serving and previous members of our armed forces who have sacrificed for our country. Ceremonies will include a moment of silence and the laying of wreaths. As a precaution to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, wreaths will be placed prior to ceremonies and services will be short. Spectators are generally discouraged from attending due to limited space and the requirement to physically distance. No veterans' or Canadian Armed Forces parades are scheduled.

While honouring those who have served and showing thanks for their sacrifice, the Ontario government and Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command ask the public to please put health and safety first while observing Remembrance Day. You can still pay tribute to our veterans and active service members in many other ways:

  • wearing a poppy
  • sharing your thanks online by using #RemembranceDay
  • observing a moment of silence at 11 am on November 11 wherever you are
  • joining online at the Queen’s Park Ceremony of Remembrance livestream on November 11 at 10:45 am, or local virtual event to reduce the risk of exposure or spread of COVID-19.

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 small donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
