November 12, 2020. On November 11, a curtailed, but moving, Remembrance Day service was held outside the Borden-Carleton Legion, in front of the Cenotaph. The weather was beautiful, unlike in past years!
Wreaths had been placed ahead of time, respecting Covid-19 safety measures. Legion veterans gave the salute for the official wreaths, with Hon. Jamie Fox, MLA for District 19 Borden-Carleton giving the act of respect for the wreath laid on behalf of the Province of Prince Edward Island.
After the official wreaths were noted, names were read out ‘in memory of’ for the other wreaths and crosses, and as each name was read out, a Legion member raised the wreath or cross up from its position of lying on the ground.
The service was well-organized and put together with a small number of volunteers.
Remembrance Day may be over for this year, but the work of remembrance of those who served continues. If you have photos or information to share, please email Pieter at email@example.com or comment on the blog.
