Due to COVID, public Remembrance Day services in MM have been cancelled this year. Online services will be available for both Almonte and Pakenham:
Remembrance service by invitation only and limited to 25 persons at the Cenotaph in Almonte at 11 a.m on November 11th. We fully appreciate that many will still want to attend the Cenotaph and pay their respects and so we will be live streaming the service onto the internet. The event live stream can be found here:
We encourage all those who wish to attend to do so safely from the comfort of their homes in particular our veterans who are at high risk.
On Remembrance Day, we acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country and acknowledge our responsibility to work for the peace they fought hard to achieve.
In Pakenham, we have a long tradition of paying our respects to the brave men and women who gave and continue to give their lives in the line of duty.
This year is no exception. But because of COVID-19 we will have a virtual Remembrance Day service especially designed for Pakenham. The service will run on YouTube starting at 10:45 a.m. on November 11, 2020. The service can be accessed by searching for “Virtual Pakenham Cenotaph or Pakenham Cenotaph. ”The link will show as a private event and will not be accessible until the appointed time.
