After a one-year Covid 19 hiatus the Remembrance Day Community Commemoration Service is returning to the Welland Crowland War Memorial in Chippawa Park on Thursday November 11th, 2021.  Service Co-Organizer Ken Cassavoy says they now have the green light for the service to go ahead this year.

As in past years the service will be an informal one, a simple gathering of friends, family and all others who wish to remember and honour those who died, as well as all who served, in World Wars I and II, the Korean War and numerous Canadian peace-keeping missions around the world.

The service centres on the live CBC Radio broadcast from the National Cenotaph in Ottawa, with a local live reading of “In Flanders Fields” by Service Co-organizer Betsy Warankie.  The service runs from 10:45 to 11:15 on November 11 at the Welland Cenotaph.

Mask wearing and Social Distancing is recommended for all those attending the service.

Support for the Remembrance Day Community Commemoration Service is provided by the City of Welland and the Welland Museum.
