This year’s cam­paign is a spe­cial one be­cause it marks the 100th an­niver­sary of the Ar­mistice that ended the First World War. The cam­paign cli­maxes on Nov. 11, with the an­nual Re­mem­brance Cer­e­mony at Aca­dia’s Univer­sity Hall, where the names are read out of all lo­cal ci­ti­zens and Aca­dia stu­dents who fell in the wars of the 20th cen­tury.

The cer­e­mony is fol­lowed by a pa­rade to the War Memo­ri­als at Aca­dia’s old gym and at the post of­fice. The pa­rade will be ac­com­pa­nied this year by the Pipes and Drums of 14 Wing, Green­wood.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Su­sanne Win­ters at 902-599-3060.
