1,000 Candles Required to Light the Fenelon Falls Cenotaph on November 10, 2008
Once again the main street of Fenelon Falls will be lit with hundreds upon hundreds of candles carried by the community in silent tribute to Veterans both past and present. The candles are placed by family, friends, The Royal Canadian Legion and children of the community in remembrance of loved ones who served or are serving in Canada’s military. Those who have no military connection can sponsor a candle in tribute to The Unknown Soldier, those who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan or bear a suitable tribute message.
procession arrives at the Cenotaph, the candles are placed around
the base of the monument one by one and a brief ceremony of
remembrance marks the occasion. Organizer Arlene Colman, the Royal
Canadian Legion Branch Poppy Chairman, hopes 1,000 candles will
flicker in silent tribute to our Veterans who served and continue to
serve in the cause of peace and freedom.
