Greet­ings & Sa­lu­ta­tions! Here’s what’s new this week in the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity.

“On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, we will re­mem­ber you.” Re­mem­brance day ser­vices will be held at the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity Hall at 10:30 a.m., with a march to the Ceno­taph at 11:00 a.m. Light lun­cheon to fol­low pro­vided by the Stan­dard Lionettes. Lest we for­get.

Did you know… Ev­ery year on Novem­ber 11, Cana­di­ans pause in a mo­ment of si­lence to hon­our and re­mem­ber the men and women who have served, and con­tinue to serve Canada dur­ing times of war, con­flict and peace. We re­mem­ber the more than 2,300,000 Cana­di­ans who have served through­out our na­tion’s his­tory and the more than 118,000 who made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice. The poppy is the sym­bol of Re­mem­brance Day. Replica pop­pies are sold by the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion to pro­vide as­sis­tance to Vet­er­ans.

The next trip is on Tues­day, Novem­ber 13, and the des­ti­na­tion is the Sun­ridge Mall. Here are the par­tic­u­lars; your care as­sis­tant is wel­come to join you, sign up is at the se­nior’s cen­ter by noon the Fri­day be­fore de­par­ture, mem­ber­ship is not re­quired, bus de­parts from Stan­dard at 8:15 a.m. and leaves Cal­gary at 3 p.m. Please con­tact Joan at 403-644-3860 for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

The Stan­dard Mu­nic­i­pal Li­brary works to con­tribute to the well-be­ing and health of the com­mu­nity by pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion, sup­port­ing lit­er­acy and bring­ing peo­ple to­gether. The li­brary par­tic­i­pates in the Marigold Li­brary Sys­tem, which means the li­brary is a sin­gle point of ac­cess to mil­lions of movies, CDs, DVDs, eRe­sources, events, meet­ing room rentals, and even books! A fam­ily rate gives you ac­cess to all the li­brary of­fers. Mem­ber­ship has its priv­i­leges, join to­day!
