This year’s Remembrance Day activities in Stittsville will begin at 1:30pm on November 11, when the Arnprior Pipe Band will lead a parade from the parking lot of the Legion building, marching to the Cenotaph in front of Johnny Leroux Community Arena.
The official ceremony begins at 2:00pm at the Cenotaph. This year’s ceremony will include a choir of 125 children, the largest ever for a Stittsville Remembrance Day. This year’s Silver Cross Parents are Claire & Richard Leger. Their son Marc was one of the first Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
It’s a long-standing tradition that participants head back to the Legion on Stittsville Mainstreet afterwards for fellowship and rereshments.
