Guide to Remembrance Day Ceremonies in Kingston in 2013

Remembrance DayKingston’s proud military roots run deep, which makes the Limestone City a perfect place to find yourself in on Remembrance Day.  In fact, there are numerous Remembrance Day ceremonies taking place on November 11th at local area schools, churches, as well as retirement and long-term care facilities.  With most public ceremonies commencing around 10:45 and lasting between 30-40 minutes, taking part in a ceremony is tremendously easy, rewarding and memorable.  Accordingly, we’ve compiled a brief list of local ceremonies to help you commemorate Remembrance Day in Kingston.

Remembrance Day is an important opportunity for us to honour those who have served in the military, as well as those who continue to serve in the Canadian Armed Forces. Wherever you decide to show your respect and reflect on the sacrifices made, the shared goal is to remember.  Lest we Forget.
