To keep forever living the freedom for which they died.
Arnprior was late to erect a cenotaph, by Ontario standards. The monument on John St N near Ewan St, in front of the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital, was the site of Remembrance Day ceremonies on 11 November 1952, and was officially dedicated in July 1953. On the front of the cenotaph are 60 names of local men who died in WW1. WW2 and Korean War names are on the reverse. Swords decorate the sides.
This Monday’s post is coming a bit later than usual … for some of you it will already be Tuesday. The two tornados that hit Ottawa on Friday left my part of the city without hydro for more than two days. A small inconvenience compared to those whose houses were damaged or ruined in the storm. My thoughts are with them today.
