Thank you to all who shared their remembrances with us on Facebook. It was wonderful to hear your stories of family and Remembrance Day gatherings. Kathleen Yeats McCawley will receive the package of books pictured above.
Remembrance Day is a time to reflect on the past and think about those who donned a uniform for our country. This year, we’re asking you to share your remembrance with us. Simply visit our Facebook page and tell us who or what you’ll be thinking about on November 11. On November 13 at noon we’ll randomly select one commenter to receive a package of book focusing on the First and Second World Wars.
