Lest We Forget: Remembrance Day in Peterborough-Kawartha

 

On Remembrance Day and throughout Veterans’ Week, I encourage everyone in Peterborough—Kawartha to take the time to pay tribute to all those who have served throughout our history, those who are currently serving, and their families. This week, Canadians from coast to coast to coast will lay wreaths, attend ceremonies, share stories and wear poppies proudly.

We remember the service and sacrifices of the soldiers, sailors and aviators who answered the call of duty and paid the ultimate price. We honour those who continue to serve to make our world a safer place. We pay tribute to the families of those who have served, and the important role they play. This year on Remembrance Day, I hope all Canadians take time to pause and pay tribute.

Here is a list of the ceremonies and parades to remember our Veterans here in Peterborough and the Kawarthas:
