Community members packed the Edwin Switzer Memorial, Royal Canadian Legion, Branch # 78 last Saturday for a Remembrance Day Tea.
Organized by the Legion Ladies Auxiliary, the afternoon tea was a fundraiser for the Legion.
Members of 270 Otter Cadet Squadron served tea, coffee, sandwiches and dainties during the event.
The event included a bake table and a touch and take table.
Coffee and tea were poured by Legion president Dennis Leney and Legion Ladies Auxiliary acting president Charron Sippola.
Leney said the cadet’s help was greatly appreciated.
He also shared that, to mark the 100th anniversary of the ending of the First World War, the bell at Sacred Heart Parish will be rung 100 times, in five second intervals on November 11, as a show of respect and remembrance.
Remembrance Day services will take place in Sioux Lookout and Hudson on November 11.
Community members in Sioux Lookout are asked to gather outside of the Legion at 10:30 a.m.
Community members in Hudson are asked to meet outside of community hall at 10:45 a.m.
Both ceremonies will include a march to the cenotaph and an 11 a.m. service.
A luncheon will follow both services.
