#ygkChallenge: Remember

Remembrance DayWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Remember! On November 11, Canadians will reflect and remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace.  Locally, community and military groups will be laying wreaths at the Cross of Sacrifice as a part of the civic ceremony.  Of course there are many ceremonies taking place around the city, and numerous other ways to participate and remember. Wearing a poppy is easy, while keeping it on your person for an entire day is a bit more challenging.  However you choose to remember, this week’s challenge encourages you to simply reflect on those who gave their lives and selflessly work so that we may live in peace.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by sharing the link and encouraging the participation of your friends and family. By joining together in our weekly challenge, we hope to accomplish big and positive things for our community.

  • Well someone is just going to step right on those pins, this is a very irresponsible picture.
