Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is also known as Armistice
Day and marks the end of World War One on
the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the
eleventh month in 1918.

Wear a poppy near your heart with pride and
observe the two-minute silence in honor of
those who lost their lives. We have it pretty
good here in Canada.

A few photos of Memorial Park in
Shaunavon, Saskatchewan.

The War Memorial Cenotaph was built
during 1925-26 and memorializes all those
who gave their lives in the Great War.  At
that time a scroll listing the six hundred
names of those who enlisted from the town
and area was placed inside an empty cavity
within the monument.  The cenotaph now
also acknowledges those who served in
World War II and the Korean War.

Both the monument and the park itself
are well maintained and in excellent
condition.  One can see the pride here.
