Remembrance Day 2010

Remembrance Day was thursday, and here in Manotick there is a Cenotaph where there is a ceremony every year. The Cenotaph is within walking distance from Keir's school.  I am always surprised at how many people show up to the ceremony, it is very impressive to see all the people gathering to Remember. There is a Legion in Manotick, so that must have a strong influence on the ceremony
Here is the actual Cenotaph:
Not sure how many people where there but there was a lot:
This year there was even two WWII era planes that flew over (a Spitfire and a Mustang):
Keir was part of the ceremony, as he is in Beaver's this year (part of Scouts) and the whole Scouting organization presents a wreath, you can sort of see Keir standing in front of the Cenotaph in his Blue and brown Beavers hat:
He took the whole ceremony very serious and we were very proud of him.
Thank you to all the veterans, military personel, and the fallen soldiers who let us live the lives we enjoy so much.
That is all for now.
Take care
