2017 Remembrance Day services in Edmonton, AB
Every day – on six continents around the world – the brave men and women of the Canadian armed forces proudly protect our country. November 11 is the day we set aside to not only honor those who didn’t make it home from their service but to also honor their accomplishments and achievements. There are several Remembrance Day services and ceremonies being held around Edmonton. Don Wheaton wants to make sure that everyone knows when and where these events are being held so that people can attend. From everyone at Don Wheaton, thank you for your service.
