Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

Sunday, November 11, 2018 - 10:45

The Remembrance service begins at approximately 10:45 am in Veterans Park in front of the Legion. Afterwards the public is invited to come into the Legion for a light lunch.

In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, the Royal Canadian Legion, in partnership with the government of Canada, has initiated "The Bells of Peace Initiative." At sunset, projected to be at 4:57 p.m. in Pelham, church bells will ring throughout the Town 100 times.  From our records, 17 citizens of what was known as "Pelham Township" were either killed or died in service and another 140 citizens either served overseas or in Canada during this four year conflict. As such, the celebratory bells take on additional meaning for the decedents of these brave individuals who defended our nation. We are asking the citizens of Pelham to take a moment to reflect and pay homage to the men and women who served our nation and continue to serve our nation during this time.
