Remembrance Day

All About Scrapbooks & More
will be
the morning of
from 10:00am - 1:00pm
We will reopen at 1:00pm - 9:00pm.

On Friday, we reflect on the sacrifice made by generations of Canadian Military Personnel and other service groups, for the protection of our fundamental values. We are indebted to the men and women, who served and continue to serve our country. We pause to remember those who paid the ultimate price in defence of our country and those who cannot defend themselves.

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields."
- John McCrae
