Remembrance Service on a Sunday this Year
All welcome to join traditional service at Confederation Square
This year’s Peterborough Remembrance Day Service is to be held on Sunday, Nov. 11 at Confederation Square. Organizers are hoping for a larger attendance as it falls on a Sunday this year so many people will not be a work or school. The service starts at 10:25 a.m. with a parade arriving at the Citizens’War Memorial. At 10:30 a.m., the Salvation Army Band and the Peterborough Pop Ensemble will lead the singing of O’ Canada.
