Remembrance Day ceremonies set for three Brock communities

As the world marks a century since the end of World War 1, a new study shows more Canadians are planning to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony this year.

The results of the study, which was conducted by Ipsos for Historica Canada, indicate 39 per cent of Canadians are planning to attend a service, a climb of 10 per cent from 2017. According to Historica Canada, those between the ages of 18 and 34 slightly edged out the older age groups as the most likely to participate, with 41 per cent planning to attend.

In Brock Township, Remembrance Day (Nov. 11) will be recognized with ceremonies in Beaverton, Cannington and Sunderland.

The day starts at 9:30 a.m. in Sunderland with a march from St. Andrew’s United Church to the Cenotaph for the 11 a.m. placing of the wreaths.

In Beaverton, the Remembrance Day parade from the fire hall to the Cenotaph starts at 10:30 a.m.. Later that day, at 4:30 p.m., there is a Bells of Peace Service at the Cenotaph.

The Cannington ceremony starts at 11 a.m. at the Cenotaph.
