It’s that time of the year where we pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our veterans and never forget what they did for us and future generations.
Milton’s Remembrance Day ceremony at Evergreen Cemetery on November 11th was a limited audience event due to covid19. This didn’t stop the low key ceremony from being respectful and serene with Royal Canadian Legion Branch # 136 – Milton, veterans, family and limited invitations being in attendance.
This year in addition to the regular poppy campaign the Milton Legion were also selling Remembrance Lawn signs to local residents for $20. Proceeds from the sign fundraiser campaign went both the Legion’s poppy fund as well as Townsend Smith Foundation. Legion P.R. Officer and Poppy Co-Chair Sameera Ali designed the signs and played a lead role along with Poppy Co-Chair Bob Elliot.
