Communities throughout Kawartha Lakes, Trent Lakes—and indeed, across Canada—will hold Remembrance Day and wreath-laying ceremonies in the next weeks to honour the men and women who offered themselves to defend our freedom and democracy, and their neighbours, families and country.

Almost all who served were emotionally, physically and/or spiritually scarred, and many ultimately

paid with their lives. We owe them our remembrance and honour.

The traditional date and time for such services is 11 am on Nov. 11 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month), but please pay close attention to the listings below, as there are variations.

We know that not everyone will be able to attend a service (and it’s a good idea to go early if you can). But we all should be able to pause for two minutes at 11 am, Remembrance Day to honour our veterans with silence or prayer—in what’s known as the “Wave of Silence.”

Here’s an alphabetically ordered list of Remembrance Day Services for Kawartha Lakes, Trent Lakes and Curve Lake.
