We Will Always Remember - Hundreds Attend Service in Shubie

Mon Nov 11, 2:18 PM

It was cool and windy Monday morning but that didn't deter the 500-600 residents that gathered at the Cenotaphe in the Centre of the Village to Remember our men and women in the Military.  The Legion does a great job to organize and coordinate this service.  Bob Smith from the Legion led the service - he read off the Honour Role - it was interesting to hear how many from our community gave their lives in service of this great country.

Pastor Martin Reid from the Shubenacadie United Church prayed and brought words of encouragement to all that attended.  He provided some interesting facts from the wars of the past that helped us better understand what these troops went through.

There were a great number of Wreaths placed on behalf of diffenet levels of Government - Community Groups - Families - Businesses...

One of the things I like to see at the end is veryone going up and placing their poppies on the Wreaths or in the flower boxes.

Thank you to all that helped make this a special time for us and thanks to all that came.

Let always remember....
