Lest we forget: Remembrance Day 2017

Remembrance Day

Each year, the community comes together on Remembrance Day to pay tribute to those who served to ensure our freedom. The ceremony this year is on November 11 at 10:45 a.m. in Anniversary Park and everyone is welcome to attend.

“Remembrance Day is such an important occasion to honour those who have given their lives for us. It is also an opportunity to teach the next generation about the cost of freedom,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. 

Created by a group of enthusiastic volunteers, the Chestermere cenotaph was dedicated in 2015 by the Honourable Lois Mitchell, CM, AOE, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta. Since then, the cenotaph has served as the location for the annual Remembrance Day service.

Any veterans who wish to participate in the ceremonial march to the cenotaph for the service can meet at the Chestermere Fire Hall at 10:00 a.m.

There will also be a Veterans Food Box set up along the pathways in Anniversary Park for non-perishable food, cash and cheque donations. Please make cheques out to the Calgary Poppy Fund (Veteran's Food Bank).

To participate in the service, or for more information, please visit www.chestermere.ca/events.
