Remembrance Day service on Wednesday at Big Valley school

Time once again to honour the brave men and women of our armed forces. Each year we are called upon to participate together in remembering those who have given so much so that we may enjoy the freedoms we have. Remembrance Day is an opportunity for us to reflect upon all the sacrifices that have been made on our behalf. Many among us still remember old conflicts and regularly we are reminded that there are conflicts that still exist today. Homes and families are left behind, blood is still being shed and there are those who do not return. For veterans who have gone through it, and for their families, Remembrance Day is a solemn recognition of the cost of freedom. For those of us who have not experienced the devastation of war, we have the opportunity to think about the cost that has been borne and paid by others. At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, take the time to be silent and reflect on what our soldiers have done and are doing for us all.

This year Big Valley Remembrance Day services will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at the Big Valley School beginning at 10:45 a.m. and at the Jubilee Hall beginning at 10:45 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 11.
