The message for this year’s Veterans’ Day ceremony at Glenwood Cemetery will be “Honouring Those Who Fought For Peace”.

Glenwood Cemetery, in partnership with Branch 78 The Royal Canadian Legion, 415 Wing Royal Canadian Air Force Association and 851 Prince Edward Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron will host the annual Veterans’ Day at Glenwood Cemetery, Saturday, Sept. 21 beginning at 10:45 a.m.

Historic Glenwood cemetery, a 62-acre property in the heart of Picton, is the final resting place for more than 200 veterans who perished in Canada’s military engagements. Among those veterans are six British airmen who died while training at the former RAF base known as No. 31 Bombing and Gunnery School. This former training base overlooking Picton was part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, graduating hundreds of aircrew from many countries during the Second World War.

The special Veterans’ Ceremony is held during Legion Week to honour our veterans and to demonstrate gratitude for the supreme sacrifice they have made in serving Canada.

As part of the service this year, a United Nations Flag will be dedicated and flown along with the Canadian and RAF Flags.

Miniature Canadian flags and poppies will be provided to all who wish to decorate the individual graves of our veterans.

A reception will follow in the Stone Chapel. Everyone is welcome.
