Remembrance               Day

It's difficult, in present day, to imagine the trenches of World War One, the air raids of the Second World War, and even the fear of a Cold War reigniting. And yet each year, it is our duty to take a moment to thank those who donned our nations uniform so that we could live in a country where we are free.

It is our duty to remember so that we do not repeat history. So that we don't have to fight the way Canadians not so long ago fought to protect our freedoms that we cherish so dearly today. 

With COVID-19, these acts of remembrance will look differently than they have in previous years. Below, you can find a list of Remembrance Day Ceremonies in Battle River-Crowfoot that are open to the public. These ceremonies have been modified to ensure public health guidelines are followed while making it possible for people are able to pay their respects to our fallen.
