Remembrance Day Service smaller but signals a return to normal


Remembrance Day was able to be observed by a larger amount of community members this year. Last year, other than a virtual service, COVID protocols had shut down gathering in large groups. Of course, this time last year local COVID numbers were exponentially rising with no vaccine in sight. This year, following guidance from Manitoba Public Health and Dominion Command, the Legion was able to open its door to more people who could prove double vaccination. To err on the side of caution, invites were only extended to Veterans, Executive members, Dignitaries and Ordinary members. They conducted the Remembrance Day ceremony in the club room, with about 80 to 100 attendees, with a live stream that attracted almost an additional one hundred viewers. Following the event, attendees were served a meal prepared by the members of the Ladies Auxiliary. They are looking forward to be able to conduct a full Remembrance Day Service for the whole community in 2022.
