KAWARTHA LAKES: Lindsay’s Royal Canadian Legion Branch 67 plans for Remembrance Day are the same as they were in 2020.
“There’s no parade. It’s just going to be the march off of our colour party, and it will be the same as what [we] did last year, where [we] lay the wreaths ahead of time. [We] do the service with the reading of the names, and then [we] come back,” Sir Sam Hughes Branch 67 secretary/treasurer Kim Junkin told The Standard.
While the local legion branch is looking to avoid having large gatherings at the event, they are not going to tell people whether they should or shouldn’t attend.
“We’re not saying yes or no. They [the covid restrictions] say they don’t want large gatherings, but that’s out of our control,” Ms. Junkin explained.
She added, the branch is hopeful they will see positive poppy sale numbers this year.
