Nov. 11 marks 96th year of Morewood’s cenotaph
MOREWOOD – This Remembrance Day marks the 96th annual gathering at the cenotaph in Morewood’s downtown core.
Since its initial unveiling on July 6, 1921, the village memorial has long been recognized as one of the most prominent war memorials in rural Eastern Ontario.
On Sat., Nov. 11, the Morewood cenotaph committee, along with the support of area veterans and village residents, will again be hosting an 11 am gathering.
Canadian Armed Forces personnel from CFS Leitrim and the SD&G Highlanders colour party, along with a piper, will be parading from the Morewood Community Centre beginning at 10:40 am.
Following the laying of many wreathes, all involved are invited to return to the centre for lunch.
