Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph, Prescott Street, Kemptville.
Municipal Flags will be lowered to half-mast. Remembrance Day is an important day in the Canadian calendar and is an opportunity to give meaning to past sacrifice and acknowledge the courage of those presently serving. Originally called Armistice Day, It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, back in 1918. Each year we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to observe a moment of silence and mark the sacrifice of so many.
