Garden of Remembrance – 2018

We are meeting our goal of 1000 poppies for our Remembrance Day tribute!!  The Poppies are being “planted” in our black display units and will be at the Cenotaph for the Remembrance Day service on November 11.  This joint project of YOUR Library, the Local Legion, and countless volunteers has drawn together many dedicated members of the community to plant our Garden of Remembrance. They are absolutely beautiful and all our volunteers and supporters can look with pride at this special Commemoration.
