The News (New Glasgow) - - PICTOU COUNTY - BY CLYDE MAC­DON­ALD

There will be a Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony on Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. at the Sunny Brae War Me­mo­rial.

Newly-se­lected Nova Sco­tia Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive leader Tim Hous­ton will be the guest speaker for the event. Lunch will fol­low the event at the IOOF Hall in Sunny Brae.

Dur­ing the cer­e­mony, there will be two names of First World War vet­er­ans added to the me­mo­rial, bring­ing the to­tal to 51 names — two more than that of the Se­cond World War vet­er­ans, which still stands at 49. These new ad­di­tions bring the grand to­tal to 100 names on the me­mo­rial.

The new­est names that are be­ing added to the me­mo­rial are two broth­ers who served their coun­try valiantly in the First World War named John Wil­liam Cum­ming and Mar­shall Ross Cum­ming. Both were res­i­dents of Lower Cale­do­nia.
