Everyone is welcome to pause and reflect as we pay respect to loved ones and neighbours who have gone before. This is an annual time-honoured tradition when Canadians gather at war monuments with flowers and pray that their sacrifices were not in vain.
The Fergus Brass Band will commence playing at 1:30 pm, the Fergus Pipe Band will parade at 1:45 pm beginning at the ball diamond on St. David Street South, Fergus and proceed to the Legion Memorial in Belsyde Cemetery. Ceremonies begin at 2:00 pm.
Seating is available and the Legion will provide carnations for participants to decorate the grave site of their loved ones.
We remember and we continue to remember well.
