Remembrance Day Ceremonies



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Remembrance Day in the Haut-Saint-François has always brought together military personnel and their families around the various cenotaphs in the region.

Everyone pauses to remember the soldiers who died in the various conflicts that Canada participated in since the First World War in 1914 to 1918. And now Canada is once again involved in armed combat, this time against ISIS.

Schedule

In Scotstown, a Remembrance Day ceremony is planned for Saturday, November 8, at 10:30 a.m., at the Municipal Hall. The Ceilidh Society will offer lunch. In Bury, a ceremony will be on the same day, at 2 p.m., at the Armoury Community Centre.

In East Angus, on Sunday, November 9, the ceremony is to begin at the 10 a.m. mass, then continue by laying flowers at the cenotaph.

In Sawyerville, Cookshire, East Clifton and Island Brook, the Sawyerville Legion organisers plan a tour on Tuesday, November 11, stopping at four cenotaphs in these four villages. The tour begins at 11 a.m. at the monument at 6 Principale St. in Sawyerville. The second stop is at 11:45 a.m. in East Clifton, in front of the United Church, located on Route 253, between Clifton Road and Store Road. Lunch is at 12:15 p.m. at the Sawyerville Hotel-Auberge. Another service is at 2 p.m. at the cenotaph in front of the Cookshire Elementary School, and the last one is at 2:45 p.m. in Island Brook.

In Weedon, a simple homage will take place on November 11 at 1 p.m., when families will gather at the war memorial for several minutes of reflection.

Mission

The mission of the Legion is to help veterans and their dependents, to promote Remembrance, to support military personnel in service, and to be involved in local and regional communities across Canada. The tradition of wearing a red poppy goes back to the First World War. In Flanders, it is said, few of these flowers grew. But after the terrible bombardments during the war, lime from the chalky soil was scattered across the ground, facilitating the growth of the blood red poppy. Canadian physician Lieutenant Colonel John McCrea noticed this phenomenon and wrote the famous poem that begins "In Flanders fields the poppies blow/ Between the crosses, row on row...". The poem was published on December 8, 1915, in Punch magazine.
