As­so­ci­a­tion seek­ing dona­tions for Shop My Closet

The Amherst News - - CLASSIFIEDS / CHURCHES - Gail Wagstaff Gail Wagstaff writes for the Port Gre­ville area for the Amherst News.

It never sur­prises me when the com­mu­nity comes to­gether in unity.

For ex­am­ple, a good crowd at­tended the Re­mem­brance Day church ser­vice, wreath-lay­ing cer­e­mony and lun­cheon in Port Gre­ville. An added mov­ing touch was the 100 tolls of the church bells to honour the 100th an­niver­sary of the Armistice 1918.

Many of the youth took the time this year to thank a war vet­eran, cur­rent or past CAF mem­ber through a hand­writ­ten post card.

Per­son­ally, I feel that we must al­ways re­mem­ber the great sac­ri­fices

made both in war and in peace.
