Cadet Instructor Cadre and Canal Flats resident John Restemeyer salutes the cenotaph after laying a wreath with his daughter Heidi Restemeyer, 11, during the Remembrance Day service in the village on Monday, November 11th.
“My dad served in World War II, so of course I’m remembering him,” said Mr. Restemeyer. “Remembrance Day is is an opportunity for people to understand the sacrifice that Canadian servicemen and women made, and soldiers around the world, for our freedoms. It’s nice to see the people of the village out, and some of the kids.”
Embossed on a plaque at the Canal Flats cenotaph is the following phrase: “And at the going down of the sun, we shall remember them.”
