Good Morning Burlington,
The coming week brings with it an opportunity to extend special thanks to our veterans on Remembrance Day, November 11th. Our veteran community – many of whom are of advanced age – has again requested that the public avoid coming to Veteran Square beside City Hall as they perform their annual (and much smaller) event this year. I understand their concern about crowds (even as many of us are vaccinated and outdoor spaces are generally safe) due to their higher risk factors, so let’s honour that request as we pay our respects to them. I am optimistic that 2022 will provide us with an opportunity to gather again like we have in the past, with bigger crowds, the parade and more.
The local Legion Branch 60 will again be doing a live webcast of the event so please watch at their link here.
