Remembrance Day 2020
Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed by Canadians since the end of the First World War in order to remember all those who fought and died in the line of duty to keep us free. By remembering their service and their sacrifice, we recognize the tradition of freedom these men and women fought to preserve. For Remembrance Day, our community came together to donate non perishable food items to the Veterans Food Bank. Calbridge Homes donateed $1 to the Veterans Food Bank (up to $200), and residents placed crosses of remembrance in our community garden.
Our Be Thankful Together event brought together Legacians from across our community for a COVID-19 safe physically distanced brunch. Featuring a brunch donated by Milestones (Menu: Ciabatta turkey sandwich, potato salad and triple chocolate cookies with cranberry juice or water), cozy firepits, decorated tables, ambiance music, and coffee. Local photographer Richard Dunstan generously captured photo memories.
THANK YOU to our sponsors!
