Association, was dedicated on June 8, 1985 to honour the
fallen members of Westboro and surrounding areas. Itís
located near Byron Avenue between Golden and Broadview
Every year, leading up and on Nov. 11, Canadians show
their gratitude to and respect for those who sacrificed

wear poppies produced

honour the fallen at a Remembrance Ceremony at the
National War Memorial in Ottawa. We also gather for
smaller but very moving ceremonies organized by Legion
branches in thousands of neighbourhoods.

wars and died either during or after them, lie in the
Memorial Chamber in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill. If

are left grow old:

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
