Glenwood Cemetery hosts first Veterans’ Day

Glenwood Cemetery, in partnership with Branch 78 Royal Canadian Legion, Picton and 415 Prince Edward County Wing of the Air Force Association of Canada will be host the first Veterans’ Day at Glenwood Cemetery, Saturday, Sept. 17 at 9:15 a.m.

Historic Glenwood cemetery, a 62-acre property in the center of Picton, is the final resting place for more than 16,000 people – including 200 veterans – who helped shape the rich history of Prince Edward County.
Among the veterans who died in the service of their country, are six British airmen who perished during training at the former No. 31 Bombing and Gunnery School which was part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan and graduated hundreds of aircrew from many countries during the Second World War.

The special ceremony coincides with the beginning of Legion Week and honours veterans, those who died in the service of their country and current troops working around the world on behalf of Canadians.

Canadian flags will be provided to all who wish to decorate the veterans’ graves.
