Remembrance day with the Welland Museum
The public is invited to attend a Community Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day at the Welland Cenotaph from 10:45 to 11:15 a.m. on Remembrance Day, November 11, 2018.
The commemoration service will be an informal one, a simple gathering of family, friends and other members of the public to honour all those who died serving their country. The service centres around the live CBC Radio Broadcast from the National Cenotaph in Ottawa with a local live reading of "In Flanders Fields." In recognition of the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice, the names engraved on the Cenotaph will be displayed in large posters placed beside the monument for the service.
Following the service, the public will be invited to leave their poppies pinned to these posters near the names or conflicts of personal importance or significance to them. The posters, with the public's poppies still in place, will become part of the Welland Museum's Remembrance Day exhibit "We shall not sleep, though poppies grow." The exhibit will be open November 11 from 12 noon to 2p.m.
