Algonquin College Holds Remembrance Ceremony

Algonquin College held their Remembrance Day ceremony honouring our military and military families.

Attending today’s services was Tony Bourne, a World War 2 veteran who was an air gunner, sent to Japan. He fought in the war between 1943 and 1945.

Jamie Bramburger, the Manager of Community and Student Affairs, says it’s important for the college to recognize the military and their deep connections with the college…

“We have a number of students and staff who work here, study here, and have a direct military connections. Some are in the military, some are retired from the military, others are military partners, spouses, children of military. It is really important that we take the time to pause and remember, and we’ave done this for many at this campus and it’s really appreciated by our college community.”

Remembrance Day Services will be taking place across the county and the country on Sunday at 11AM. Mr Bourne will be attending the Pembroke service and will lay a wreath at the cenotaph in honour of the men and women lost in the second world war.
