Published November 2, 2022 at 4:32 pm
Oakville residents wishing to pay tribute to those veterans who have served and continue to serve Canada will have plenty of ways to do so before or on Remembrance Day this year.
A good start to honour and remember those who have gave so much for our country in times of war, conflict and peace is by wearing a poppy and making a donation to the Poppy Fund.
Donations to support veteran initiatives can be made by visiting here.
Local Remembrance Day festivities kick off this Sunday morning (Nov. 6) at 10:30 a.m. when the Bronte branch of the Royal Canadian Legion will be hosting a walk from its 79 Jones St. location to the Chris Vokes Memorial Park cenotaph (2500 Lakeshore Rd. W.).
The official ceremony takes place from 10:50 a.m. to noon. A small luncheon at Bronte Legion 486 will follow the service.
Residents can also pay tribute to our veterans and active service members by observing two minutes of silence wherever they are at 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 11.
They can also express their gratitude online through social media by using #OakvilleRemembers hashtag.
Local residents can also watch the Town of Oakville’s George’s Square Remembrance Day ceremony live on Nov. 11 at 10:45 a.m.
A parade to George’s Square, located on Trafalgar Rd. at Palmer Ave., will begin at Oakville Trafalgar Community Centre (325 Reynolds St.) at 10:30 a.m. The ceremony at George’s square will take place between 10:50 a.m. to noon.
Residents can also watch the special ceremonies on the Town’s livestream of the George’s Square Remembrance Day ceremony beginning at 10:45 a.m.
