On Friday, November 11th – Take Time to Remember

A Column from Town of Pelham/Niagara Mayor Dave Augustyn

Posted November 9th, 2016 on Niagara At Large

Each year in Pelham, the Legion and Cadets organize a number of very special ceremonies to commemorate Remembrance Day.remembrance-poppy

On Remembrance Day – this year on a Friday – the Legion will host a complete service at Veteran’s Park at the Legion in Fonthill. The service begins at 10:45 AM so that the moment of silence can occur at 11:00 AM. In recent years, and especially since the revitalization of the park, many people participate in this Remembrance Day service.

The freedoms that so many of us might take for granted – to express ourselves, to participate in cultural, religious, and political activities, to come and go as we please, to pursue a safe and happy life – are all due to the sacrifices of Veterans and those who serve today. They sacrificed their futures so that our future might be one of peace and of happiness.

Let us each take a few moments to participate in these Remembrance Day ceremonies so that we can be thankful and rededicate ourselves to peace. Lest we forget.
