Annual Memorial Service in Honour of Decoration Day

Decoration Day is held the second Sunday of June. Our 2024 Memorial Service in Honor of Decoration Day was held on Sunday, June 9th. The event was a success with many members of the public in attendance. The 2024 service featured live music, bagpipes, as well as a blessing & scripture. The service was an opportunity to reflect and pay homage to our friends, families, and loved ones who are no longer with us.

 

Please check back for details as they become available for our 2025 event.

 

Decoration Day is a time honoured tradition where families visit the cemetery to pay respects to their loved ones by tidying up gravesites, cleaning cemetery memorials, and placing floral tributes. This annual observance has been honoured for decades at our cemetery but few can remember the true history behind this tradition.

 

Decoration Day, a precursor to Remembrance Day, was once a nationally recognized day in Canada that commemorated our war dead. On this day Canadians would gather at war memorials, visit the cemetery to clean up veteran’s gravesites, and leave floral tributes, wreaths and garlands.
