Remembrance Day is only days away and we all have memories from growing up and attending the service in our local communities. The events that we held in our schools in order to remember those who fought for our freedom and for the lives we live today.

We have so much to be thankful for and so little to contribute in return. In the coming days we can do our part by attending the Estevan Royal Canadian Legion's Poppy Tea on Sunday, November 6th from 2-4 in the small Legion Hall. You will enjoy coffee, tea and dainties in the comfort of friends and family, a very small way of showing your support at this time of year. Donations will be accepted for the annual Poppy Campaign at this event. The funds raised help our Legion support Veterans in many ways.


As we move forward a few days to Remembrance Day itself on Friday, November 11th our local service is going to be back to a more normal style. Troy LeBlanc  former President of the Estevan Royal Canadian Legion reminds us it will be back in the gym at the Estevan Comprehensive High School.. They would like to have everyone seated by 10:30am and the service will begin at 10:45am. The majority of the laying of the wreaths will take place in the gym. Lunch will be served after the service and then a small service with the laying of the wreaths will be held outdoors at the Cenotaph in Estevan for anyone who would like to attend.


Mr LeBlanc also said "Remembrance Day is very, very important to me and my family."
