Thanks for remembering veterans on Remembrance Day

Thanks to the people of Lake Country for their attendance and support at Remembrance Day Services and contributing to the poppy campaign.

To the editor:

With Nov. 11 now passed, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the people of Lake Country for their attendance and support for both the Remembrance Day Services as well as contributions to our poppy campaign.

To facilitate the event, it requires countless volunteers who work hard not just this time of year, but behind the scenes all year long to ensure success.

I also like to thank all the volunteers for their efforts and contributions.  It is so greatly appreciated.

This year we had a successful poppy campaign and a well attended ceremony at the George Elliott gymnasium.

And while our volunteers, businesses and the George Elliott School contributed to organizing it, it was the people of Lake Country, the community that attended to pay their respects to our fallen comrades, our living veterans and those personnel still serving who make it a success. You have taken the time of the past few weeks, and in fact throughout the year, to thank us for our services to our country.

On behalf of our veterans and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people and businesses of Lake Country for supporting us and showing respect during this time of the year.
