2018 Remembrance Day Ceremony

Our 2018 Remembrance Day ceremony has concluded.  Once again we honoured our area citizens who’ve fought and died for the freedoms we and our families enjoy today. 

John Scott of the Board of Trade presided over the ceremonies which included local dignitaries and the New Hamburg Legion’s Colour Guard. 

Thank you to Bethel Church who allowed us to gather for coffee after the ceremony at the church – particularly welcome given the cold wind today.

Wreaths laid in honour will remain at the Bridge Street entrance to the community park for about one week, and the Canadian Flag will fly on the light poles as well.
