The day started out with a proud march from our Legion, all the way to the War Memorial park.
Once we had arrived at the War Memorial, we began with our National Anthem.
Then, at exactly 11:00am - we paused for the moment of silence. A moment to remember all who fought for our country. They continued by reading the famous poem by John McCrae - In Flanders Fields.
Then we watched, as the soldiers, and their families, carried the wreaths of remembrance up, and placed them at the War statue. After they had finished, we were able to go and place our poppies along the war statue as well.
Lest we forget...
And what were the dogs doing while all this was going on?
Chillaxin' at the house, having some down time together.
How about you?
What did you, or your town/city do to pay tribute on November 11'th?
