#ygkChallenge: Remember Them

Remembrance Day, Veterans WeekThe #ygkChallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkChallenge encourages you to:

Remember Them!  Next week, Canadians will commemorate Veterans’ Week and Remembrance Day by honouring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of Canada.  The many ways to remember and honour our Veterans include wearing a poppy, attending a Remembrance Day ceremony, as well as thanking veterans and members of the Canadian Armed Forces.  However you choose to remember, this week’s challenge encourages you to reflect on the legacy of those who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
