Remembrance Day observed across Midwestern Ontario

In 2022, Remembrance Day ceremonies were held in communities across Midwest Ontario.

Among them was Listowel, where hundreds of people gathered to pay their respects and remember those who made the greatest sacrifice. North Perth Mayor Todd Kasenberg told those gathered, “We have a responsibility to move on and remember those who paid the ultimate price for our community. They had dreams, they were loved, they were brave, they were brave. They will demand us Be decent, be kind, and find a better society.”

Goderich’s Courthouse Park was packed on Friday morning, the best weather in recent years for a Memorial Day ceremony.

The Celtic Blue Highlander Band leads the way from the 109th Division of the Royal Canadian Regiment on Kingston Street to the monument on the east side of Court Park.

Goderich Mayor Myles Murdock, Central Huron Mayor Jim Ginn and Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh Mayor Glen McNeil were in attendance.

Many said they attended every year. Many also said they had family members who served in the armed forces.

The ceremony ended with the placement of poppies and the singing of God Bless the King.
