Please join the community for the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cenotaph in the village to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of WW l beginning at 1030. During this war, close to 61,000 Canadians were killed, another 172,000 were wounded, and many more returned home broken in mind and body. This year, the Cumberland Community Association is paying tribute to seven young Cumberland men who were among these casualties. We are very proud to have special veteran banners fly in the village this year so that we can honour those who gave their lives so that we might be free.
The Cumberland Community Association would like to honour all others who fought in these Wars by setting up a “Field of Honour” at Canci Corner (Cameron and Old Montreal Rd) November 4 to 14. Small wooden crosses will be available at the Black Walnut and at Da Arttisti for a $2 donation (proceeds to the Legion Poppyy Fund). You can inscribe your family member’s name, military branch and who he (or she) is remembered by on the cross, we will be place them in the ground as they are received. If you would like to reserve multiple crosses please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
