Woodstock First Nations

We are proud to go to Woodstock First Nations this morning to honour our indigenous brothers and sisters. I am privileged to have served with some fine people and in our local cadet corps…Thank you all!

We very much enjoyed our service at Woodstock First Nations this morning. Thanks to all who worked hard at making it happen. It was a time of common remembrance of the sacrifices made by our peoples in the name of freedom. The morning was topped off with a delicious lunch…Thank you!

Here are some photos of our visit – including a picture of 3 Vietnam Veterans: L to R Val Polchies, Ken Sercerchi, and Roger Polchies. (Last photo)

Carleton Manor

This afternoon, we attended a Remembrance Day service at the Carleton Manor. It was such an honour to be there with them. We met a lady veteran who will celebrate her 100th birthday in early December. It was good to spend time with these folks…Lest we forget …

Woodstock High School

We were guests at the Woodstock High School. We were treated to a lovely luncheon cooked and served by the culinary class…Delicious! We attended their Remembrance Day service two times in the afternoon because it school student body was divided. We were impressed with the overall presentation…so proud of our youth! Our President, Manderville Canam, was the guest speaker…

Townsview School

We had an awesome time this morning at the Townsview School here in Woodstock, NB. The staff and students did an excellent job of producing a Remembrance Day program. Here are a few photos:,,Thank you!

Now for something different…some Townsview students painted these memory rocks (last photo) and passed them out to all the veterans this morning. What a wonderful idea!
