Remembrance Day November 11, 2020

This year due to the Covid pandemic Remembrance Services across the Province will be very different. In our own area of Mississippi Mills we have unfortunately had to cancel many of our usual events. This year there will be no Veterans Dinner at the Legion, no Legion led Remembrance services at the Senior Residences in the town, Country Haven, Fairview Manor or Orchard View and finally there will be no formal Remembrance service at Clayton Cenotaph but we understand that Pakenham will be holding a virtual Cenotaph service on You Tube and FaceBook.
We will however be holding a short Remembrance service by invite only and limited to 25 persons at the Cenotaph in Almonte at 1100Hrs on November 11th. We fully appreciate that many will still want to attend the Cenotaph and pay their respects and to this end we will be live streaming the service onto the internet. The event live stream can be found here :-
For those on FaceBook : OR

We encourage all those who wish to attend to do so safely from the comfort of their homes in particular our Veterans who are at high risk.
Everyone is of course welcome to visit the Cenotaph on November 11th and pay their respect but we would ask that you do so with either prior to or after the the formal service at 1100 Hrs.
On November 8th the Almonte Legion will lay wreaths in Pakenham and Clayton, one of the wreaths will be marked for the public on which they can place their poppies as a mark of respect should they wish to do so. A similar wreath for the public will be placed in Almonte on November 11th.
We thank you for your consideration and cooperation during these difficult times.
We Will Remember Them
Stay Safe

President Almonte Legion
