Don’t forget to take a moment of silence at 11:00 am today to remember all of those who fought for the freedoms that we are fortunate enough to have.

The poppy is used a symbol of remembrance. On November 11th, we remember the brave people who fought and gave up their lives to fight for our country. There was over 17 million deaths during the first World War- and it is important to commemorate all the sacrifices that were made and the lives that were taken.
