Public Notice – Remembrance Day

KV Remembrance Day ceremony cancelled –

The annual Kennebecasis Valley Remembrance Day ceremony at the qplex has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

More than 1,500 people have gathered for the ceremony every November since it was first moved indoors in 2013, but physical-distancing requirements and a ban on large gatherings, due to the pandemic, make it impossible to hold a traditional ceremony this year.

“We encourage people to honour Remembrance Day and our veterans in their own private way,” said Heather McClintock of Royal Canadian Legion Kennebecasis Branch #58. “The sacrifices that were made for our country still deserve to be recognized.”

Anyone looking to support the Legion should call 847-5146.
