It is Remembrance Day and that means there are going to be those who are taking the time to honour the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. If you are looking to take that minute of silence to remember the fallen and those still living then there are several services taking place in Brantford and Brant County;
Remembrance Day Service will take place at the Cenotaph at the corner of Brant Avenue and Dalhousie Street. The ceremony begins at 11:00AM. In case of inclement weather, the Service will be held in the Armouries Building located on Brant Avenue and Colborne Street.
Service will be held at the cenotaph on Park Road from 10 a.m. to noon.
Parade starts at 10:30 a.m., with a service at the Paris cenotaph at Mechanic Street and Grand River Street North beginning with a moment of silence at 11 a.m.
Service takes place from 10 a.m. to noon the cenotaph at Beverly and Main streets.
Where ever you choose to spend your moment of silence, even tuned in with us just before 11 a.m., we hope that you take a moment to remember.
