Remembrance Day Ceremonies in Halifax

FB_IMG_1509840753187

Lest We Forget.

Remembrance Day is of particular significance to Halifax, which not only served an important role in both the great wars, but presently stands as one of Canada’s largest Canadian Forces Base.

Whether you have or have had a loved one in service or not, attending a Remembrance Day ceremony is a powerful and moving event.

*** Update: The Sullivan’s Pond memorial may be taking place at the gazebo this year due to construction.
