As you may know we traditionally hold a Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph on Nov 11. Our numbers exceed the allowable pandemic restrictions.We will not be conducting our usual service. But to honour our vets, we will be inviting the wreath placers to do so during a time slot that morning. The honour roll will be read just prior to 11 am followed by the last post, moment of silence and reveille. We are asking that people observe this time remotely knowing that the veterans are being honoured. Should you be compelled to attend please adhere to all social distancing protocol including face masks. Thank you.
