Remembrance day-2019REMEMBRANCE DAY NOVEMBER 11, 2019

Chilliwack Senior Peer Counsellors pays tribute to all of the brave men and women who have served our country. We remember all those who served, volunteered, sacrificed, and died for our freedom. We wear our poppies proudly in honour of those who fought so hard for what we have today.

“They shall not grow old, as we that are left
grow old: age shall not weary them, nor the
years condemn. At the going down of the sun
and in the morning, we will remember them.”

-Laurence Binyon, “Ode of Remembrance”
