Lest We Forget

It's that time of year again, Remembrance Day.

My coleader and I (since our meeting day falls on a Monday) decided that we would encourage the girls to go to the town's Remembrance Day ceremonies.

If they went, in uniform, they got a special crest - the girl guide crest that has three poppies on a field of blue, with the words Remembrance Day.

The girls got to help lay a wreath at the foot of the cross as well as get a photo taken with 10 mounties in full red serge.

We only had about half the girls show up - the school made this into a five-day long weekend - but I hope those that did can keep remembering.
