Douro Dummer, ON – While restrictions on outdoor gatherings have recently lifted, the 2021 Remembrance Day Ceremony will remain online. Organizers note that preparations for the ceremony were geared toward a more restrictive situation, and at this point it would require more time and resources than are immediately available to switch to an in-person ceremony.
“We truly hope that we can get back to normal for Remembrance Day next year. We can plan on a record turnout (next year) to demonstrate our community’s respect for those who served and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice” says Mayor J. Murray Jones.
The Remembrance Day Ceremony organizers understand that some individuals may still visit the Cenotaph to pay their respects, and for those individuals there will be personnel on-site during the late morning of November 11th.
To observe the complete Remembrance Day ceremony, as well as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Warsaw Cenotaph, please join us on the Township’s YouTube channel. The pre-recorded video of the ceremony will be aired starting at approximately 10:45 a.m. on November 11th, 2021. A link to the video will be provided in November on the Township’s website www.dourodummer.ca
