Every year, the Town of Innisfil joins community members and the Lefroy-Belle Ewart Legion Branch to commemorate Remembrance Day to honour the courage and sacrifice of those who fought for their country. Once again, the Town invites residents to attend a virtual Remembrance Day ceremony to pay respects in the safest way possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The annual Remembrance Day service provides an opportunity for all of us to pause and reflect on the role that Innisfil’s citizens have played in protecting and preserving Canada’s freedoms in times of war, conflict and peace,” said Mayor Lynn Dollin. “I encourage everyone to participate in one of the many ways to remember. Lest we forget.”

The virtual Remembrance Day ceremony will be live-streamed on the Town’s Remembrance Day webpage and on the Town’s Facebook page, starting at 10:55 a.m. on November 11. The video will feature a virtual service including a Moment of Silence, readings, and images of soldiers from Innisfil and Bradford from the Our Stories Innisfil archive. Flags will be flown at half-mast and wreaths will be laid at the Town Hall memorial.

To recognize National Veterans’ Week (November 5-11) and Remembrance Day, patrons of the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library will notice a cut-out silhouette of a soldier at each branch surrounded with laser-cut poppies. On these poppies, visitors will be invited to write the name of a veteran or loved one who is currently serving in the armed forces, or a few words of thanks or remembrance.

For other ways to remember the sacrifices and achievements of the brave Canadians who served, and continue to serve, our country at home and abroad, visit innisfil.ca/remembrance-day.
