In Remembrance of Our Veterans

Fri, 10 Nov by Sonia Tarabay

In Remembrance and as an act of gratitude for Veterans, we honour those who have served, and in respect for this day. Wear your poppy with pride. If you haven’t gotten one already, you can get a poppy just about anywhere, at any business. The poppy is a symbol of respect for the greatest of sacrifices by those who fought, and still fight for the freedom we take for granted.

Truly enjoy what you have. Remembrance Day is a good day to be very conscious about the fortunes and people in your life. Try to recall a time in your life when you didn’t have all the luxuries and freedoms you have today. What about the arts and sciences that bring us all closer together and give us a better understanding of one another? And your family’s ability to get the kind of education and job they want, freely? Our livelihoods, cultures and liberties are results of the efforts of those who were willing to sacrifice for the rest of us. They leave their families behind so we can come back to ours every day. So this Remembrance Day, remember these sacrifices and that to honour them, you should truly enjoy all that you have as a result.

Spend the day with good company and find some time on November 11 to gather in support with others who share your observations about Remembrance Day, like family, friends, colleagues or a communion. It’s common tradition to observe a moment of silence at 11AM on the day, so you can suggest this to whomever you’re spending time with.

In Sherwood Park, along with many residents, it is tradition for my family and I to attend The Remembrance Day ceremony at Millennium Place, located at 2000 Premier Way. It commences at 10:30 a.m.

Regardless of what you plan to do this Remembrance Day, I hope it’s a day of reflection for you and those you care about.

Warm regards,


Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice

It’s almost easy to take the freedom we have for granted in Canada today. We have freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the freedom of free thought. Everyone over the age of 18 has the right to vote and elect people who represent us. Thankfully, many Canadians have never lived in a world where it has been any other way.

It’s important to recognize those freedoms and it’s just as important to recognize the brave men and women who fought to help protect them. Since 1914, nearly 115,000 people died while representing Canada in the two World Wars, in various peacekeeping operations and in Korea and Afghanistan. Many of these people were very young, with much of their lives still ahead of them. On November 11, Remembrance Day, we have the opportunity to pay our respects to all of those who have served for the greater good.

In Sherwood Park, schools throughout the community will host ceremonies and observe a moment of silence to remember the fallen. There will also be the annual Remembrance Day service at Millennium Place on Nov. 11 starting at 10:30 a.m.

It warms my heart to see so many people in Sherwood Park who are proudly displaying their poppies in front of their heart. If we all remember the sacrifices that have been made, we can stop these tragic wars from happening again in the future.

Warmest regards,



Remembrance Day
