Stand On Your Front Porch at 11a for Remembrance Day
As you can imagine things are a little different this year for Remembrance Day. Most ceremonies around the area have been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, and we obviously can't pay our respects the way we are used to.
So, here's an alternative.
The trend is being pushed across the city and surrounding areas to stand out on your porch/balcony at 11a to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could be free.
The image shared from the community of Morinville and Sturgeon County states:
Mayor Don Iveson and St. Albert Mayor Cathy Herron have also shared their support:
I encourage all Edmontonians to step out into the crisp air of this coming 11/11 morning to observe your #RemembranceDay2020 moment of silence from your front porch or balcony. Heartwarming initiative in our #yegmetro region to honour our veterans and fallen soldiers. #yegcc #yeg https://t.co/Mwxr9SLNOk— Don Iveson (@doniveson) November 9, 2020
