Honour, Respect and Memories Shared at Evanston Summit

Remembrance Day ceremony held at Evanston Summit with thoughtful moments, kind gestures and veterans honoured.

The poppy, a symbol of remembrance in Canada, has been worn for 100 years now. At Evanston Summit, veterans, residents, staff and visitors proudly donned poppies in honour of the millions of Canadians who have served and continue to serve our great nation during times of war, conflict and peace.

November 11, 2021 was a little extra special after not being able to gather together in 2020. Fittingly, the veterans in attendance were acknowledged and then asked to lay the wreaths. The Pastoral Team led the ceremony with all in attendance observing two minutes of silence and listening to the Last Post. The local Brownies displayed how they think of others before themselves (the Brownie Law), offering handwritten notes of gratitude for the six veterans living at Evanston Summit. Residents and staff were encouraged to bring forward the names of loved ones lost in battle, their names added to the honour wall in recognition and memory. 

“Although Remembrance Day is a somber day, it’s also a reflective day to recognize the sacrifice made and the gratitude for what veterans have accomplished for us,” Activity and Volunteer Coordinator, Victoria Slany, expressed. 

After the ceremony, the residents headed to the dining room to enjoy lunch, continuing their conversations of yester years and sharing memories of heroes past and present.

The Evanston Summit Residents have chosen to continue honouring veterans through a generous offering from their Residents Fund to the Veterans Food Bank this Christmas.
