That was exactly the message portrayed by the Annual Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Bkejwanong Children’s Centre on November 10th.

Community members and visitors joined students and staff from the Bkejwanong Children’s Centre (BCC), Walpole Island Elementary School (WIES), and Wallaceburg District Secondary School (WDSS) to honour veterans and soldiers.
