Giving back through life-changing experiences.
ALL MEMBERS BULLETIN
I know that members have been wondering about what is being done concerning Remembrance ceremonies.
The Poppy committee have been working hard at devolving plans that meet certain criteria.
Foremost is our commitment to present ceremonies that recognize and commend the service and the sacrifices of our veterans.
Secondly, we had to incorporate the directions and suggestions issued by Dominion and Provincial Command. Then we had to factor in the restrictions that we all face in this pandemic as regulated by the Provincial Government and the Wellington Dufferin Guelph Unit. Finally, we needed to get the cooperation to the various City Hall departments that have supported our ceremonies in the past.
Although we now have plans going forward I would caution everyone that these plans could easily be cancelled if they pose a health risk to the general population or if there a dramatic change in infection rates.
I know many of you have a strong commitment to Remembrance Day and the ceremonies that are apart of it.
I would ask you to seriously consider the risk of being exposed to infection before deciding to attend any ceremony.
All services are outside exposed to whatever November brings us .It is our expectation that anyone attending any ceremony will wear a mask and physically distance themselves from others
Other things you should know. Ceremonies have been simplified. Wreaths will be prepositioned before ceremony begins.
Rogers TV will be doing a live broadcast of the Cenotaph ceremony. Both sides of Woolwich Street in front of the Cenotaph will be blocked off to traffic by 10:30.
Canadians have been asked to sacrifice a lot in the fight to rid us of Covid 19. This may be another sacrifice for you, but we all want to be able to attend future Legion events and services when the pandemic is defeated.
