Town of Shelburne Press
Release – Remembrance Day 2014
As you know, Loyalist Branch #63 of the Royal Canadian
Legion made the difficult decision to close down all operations in August 2014.
At this time it was not known what the closure of our local Legion branch would
mean for the 2014 Remembrance Day ceremony.
We are pleased to announce that the Town of Shelburne is
working with members of the local Legion to ensure the 2014 Remembrance Day
ceremony – including the sale of wreaths and poppies – will proceed as it has
in previous years. The Town will be providing assistance to volunteers to
ensure the traditional November 11th ceremonies proceed as
anticipated by residents.
Although plans for future years’ ceremonies are still being
developed, the Town of Shelburne will work to ensure Remembrance Day ceremonies
continue to take place in our community as they have in the past.
