Remembrance Day Honoring those who have served

We are all very fortunate to live in a society where we are free of oppression and dictatorship. This is because of the people served in the armed forces and died in the line of duty.

Let's meet to pay respect and honor those who have died in the line of duty as we continue to enjoy our freedom.

As it will be busy let's meet at Hastings and Abbot in front of the Woodwards building entrance and we will move to Victory square. After we can go to China town and honor the Chinese Canadians who served at 12:30 and have lunch after.

Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month," in accordance with the Armistice, signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. ("At the 11th hour" refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 a.m.) World War I officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
