STRATFORD, P.E.I. –Stratford will honour its veterans at the town’s annual Remembrance Day ceremony this Saturday.

The 12th annual ceremony begins at 10:45 a.m. at the Stratford Town Centre, 234 Shakespeare Dr. Prior to the ceremony, the public is invited to get to know some of the town’s veterans by visiting the Stratford Heroes display, which will be available for viewing from now until Nov. 15 at the town centre and also on bus shelters around town.

“This service remains one of our most attended events of the year, which indicates the level of respect that residents have for those who put their lives on the line for our country and for the cause of freedom,” said Stratford Mayor David Dunphy.

There will also be a table inside the town centre with materials and guidance available for children to create hand-made Valentines for Vets. Veterans Affairs Canada distributes the Valentines to veterans in long-term care facilities across the country in time for Feb. 14.

Veterans and present serving members of the Canadian Forces who wish to be on parade are asked to meet at 10:15 a.m. in the gymnasium at Stratford Town Centre.

Refreshments will be available following the ceremony and all are welcome to attend.
