Beavers mark Re­mem­brance Day

Shoreline Beacon - - Church Services -

Two grip­ping ac­counts of the first-hand sav­age­ness of war held mem­bers of the Port El­gin Beaver Colony spell-bound at their Nov. 6 meet­ing as they pre­pared for re­mem­brance Day.

The ac­counts — one a poem writ­ten by a Vet­eran and the other an ac­count of bat­tle field deaths of young bud­dies — were se­lected by lead­ers to read to the Beavers, who de­spite their young ages, were more som­bre than nor­mal and “awestruck” by the war sto­ries.

The Beavers also coloured a re­mem­brance Day pic­ture and made mag­netic pop­pies us­ing pa­per muf­fin wrap­pers and Pop­si­cle sticks.
