Maggie Remembrance heartfelt

Showing my appreciation to students of Princess Margaret Secondary School for student-led Remembrance Day ceremony.

I am writing this letter is to show my appreciation to the students of Princess Margaret Secondary School for their heartfelt delivery of the student-led Remembrance Day ceremony.

Prior to the ceremony, a procession of students walked slowly past the memorial of Captain Jonathan Snyder placing maple leaves at the base.

To me, this was a powerful and moving symbolic gesture of respect and admiration for this fine young man who holds a special place in our hearts.

Choosing to honour all of our veterans and their families in an outdoor location, at the cenotaph, in Veterans” Memorial Park, was brilliant.

All of the traditions of a Remembrance Day ceremony were included by the student organizers.

Honouring hometown heroes made their message personal and deeply touched those in attendance.  All of the student speakers, singers, musicians and cadets need to be highly commended for their participation.

The quiet dignity displayed by the student audience was impressive.

My only suggestion to the future organizers would be to increase advertisement of the event so that more community members would have the opportunity to attend next year.

Thank you to the students, teachers and administrators of Princess Margaret Secondary School.  You should all be very proud of yourselves and congratulations on a job well done!

In appreciation,

Beth Stewart
