The global pandemic has directly affected the execution of this year’s Remembrance Day Ceremony. However, Township of Guelph/Eramosa is still planning for a much smaller yet heartfelt ceremony, at the Rockwood Cenotaph on November 11, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.
The importance of a live ceremony honouring our Veterans and their sacrifices is considered paramount however, for the first time, spectators will be discouraged from attending in person, due to the limited space and requirement to physically distance. The smaller number of people participating will be required to remain 2m apart and will need to wear masks unless performing certain duties related to the ceremony.
Anticipated significant changes to this year’s commemoration include:
- No Parade
- No colour party
- No post-ceremony reception
- Wreaths pre-positioned such that no wreath bearers or assistants will be required
- No members of the Cadets or Wellington Riffles present
The Township will offer a LiveStream presentation of the Remembrance Day ceremony on our Facebook Page and Website.
