The Remembrance Day service hosted by the Stittsville Legion, Branch 618, was a scaled down ceremony again this year due to the health guidelines in place. However, a significant number of Stittsville residents attended the service to honour the veterans and military who had went before us so Canadians can enjoy our democracy and freedom.

The usual parade down Stittsville Main Street was cancelled this year, as was the pipe band, the Sacred Heart High School students singing ‘O Canada’ and the Padre with his Remembrance Day prayer, this did not take away from the memories in our hearts and minds. After the ceremony, residents were invited back to the Legion to share stories and enjoy a warm bowl of chili or chowder. The attendance in the Legion hall was monitored with wristbands given out to each in attendance to obey the COVID restrictions.
