The local legion is getting ready for November 11.
James Matheson, president of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 59 in Antigonish, said Monday’s Remembrance Day ceremonies will include a parade, wreath laying, and speeches from local dignitaries. He said recognizing Remembrance Day is a way of saying thank you to those who served their country.
The Remembrance Day Parade will form up at Columbus Field before marching out at 10:30 a.m.. The parade will go down main Street and arrive at the cenotaph in Chisholm Park for 10:45 a.m., with the service to begin at 11. Matheson said the event is usually well attended
