With the generous supportof “100WomenWho Care Scugog”, “Scugog Remembers” is pleased to be joining Ottawa, our Provincial and Territorial Capitals, Canadian Embassies, major cities and History/Military Museums through- out the world, including: Australia; Belgium; Czech Republic; France; Germany; India; Italy; New Zealand; Slovenia; Turkey; United Kingdom; and the United States of America. The aims of “Scugog Remembers” are remembrance, education and mu- tualunderstanding. Ourintentionisto engage younger generations and their families through their schools and a variety of commemorative events that started daily on September 12 and continues through until November 14, throughout Scugog Township. The 1914-1918 war is now too far back for the younger generations to remember, but by engaging them now, they will have the knowledge to pass on to the next generation. This Armistice Cen- tenary year provides the ideal oppor- tunity to undertake such a broad yet inclusive project for Scugog Township. Visit our website at: scugogremembers.ca The world remembers.
