Organizer, Dave Robinson explained a new committee has been formed to create a brand new event, at this, the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Dave clarified, “There will be special themed events, beginning in mid-September building up to Remembrance week. Over 40 events will take place in dif- ferent neighbourhoods, organized by Scugog clubs, sport groups, schools, etc.” Dave went on to describe a parade that will form at the fairgrounds, stop at the Legion to pick up dignitaries, continue to downtown and end at the Township offices. “Part of the parade will be a massive six foot by twelve foot Canadian flag, with a three foot banner sewn around it. This will be carried by 68 children (the number of Scugog heroes who perished in the wars).” The entire event will be youth centric to re-enforce the importance of remembering our past. “There will be six official wreaths placed at the Cenotaph, with others being placed on a special rack, constructed by PPHS students with materials donated by Scugog Lumber. Mistress of Ceremonies, Vanessa Taber, will announce a description of festivities as they take place, so all in at- tendance will be aware of procedures as they occur. Best of all monies for the event will come from private sources.
