- There will be no seats set up for the public. Be prepared to stand and watch
- We will be on the lawn behind the Cenotaph and on the cement in front of the Cenotaph
- Weather may/will be a factor. Proper clothing for the elements should be considered
- Please social distance around the lawn or watch from your vehicle

2021 is the 100-year anniversary of the poppy. Please support poppy drives around town to honour the poppy and our Veterans. Businesses and Municipalities with flag poles should be mindful that flags should be lowered before 11am on November 11th and stay lowered until November 12th.
