Every year on November 11 we take pause and give thanks for the men and women who have dedicated themselves to protecting Canada. Remembrance Day, a traditional day of gratitude and honour, is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with family and friends.
Edmonton is well known for its great Remembrance Day services. The Butterdome Pavilion, City Hall, the Cenotaph in St. Albert, the Kingsway Royal Legion branch, and the Royal Alberta Museum all offer lovely services steeped in tradition and historical sensitivity.
Folks in Sherwood Park celebrate Canada’s heroes at Millennium Place. Parading organizations include the current and retired members of the Canadian military, the Strathcona County Fire Department, the Strathcona County RCMP detachment, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, Air and Sea Cadets, and various members of the municipal, provincial, and federal government. This is a popular event so plan to arrive early in order to secure a seat…standing room is also available.
Wherever you attend, be sure to take a deep breath and a personal moment to smile in wonder at the grace and definition of what it means to be Canadian.
