A ceremony of remembrance was held at the Leduc Municipal Cemetery Nov 10th

A ceremony of remembrance was held at the Leduc Municipal Cemetery Nov 10th, to educate, respectfully remember, act and honour all soldiers’ headstones in November with the symbol of remembrance, the poppy.  The service was led by the Leduc Communities in Bloom committee, and poppies were placed on the graves of soldiers in the Field of Honour by the students from the New Sarepta Community High School with their teacher, Catherine Farley.  Participants included Mayor Greg Krischke, Councillors Dana Smith, Glen Finstead, Bev Beckett and the Legion chaplain, Rev. Susan Ormsbee.  Veterans, members of the public and two serving Armed Forces soldiers were also in attendance.  One of the goals of No Stone Left Alone is to educate our youth in an authentic Outreach Education event which cannot be duplicated in a classroom setting.  This initiative has spread since its inception but this was the first occasion for Leduc.  More information can be found at www.nostoneleftalone.ca
