Remembering our veterans


submitted by Vince Zandbelt

A special North Dundas Remembrance Day project saw both the Chesterville Rotary clock and the Sweet Corner Park fountain decorated with poppies on November 1.

Two crocheting groups along with numerous local crocheters created a stockpile of approximately 10,000 poppies, a portion of which were attached to camouflage netting which adorned both the clock and the fountain to honour veterans for Remembrance Day.

Future display additions in following years will be created with the surplus poppies.

The participating North Dundas service groups equally shared the material costs for this project. The participating groups were:

  • Chesterville Legion
  • Winchester Legion
  • Chesterville Lions
  • Winchester Lions
  • Chesterville Rotary
  • Winchester Downtown Committee.

Many local residents participated in the creation of these poppies along with two crocheting groups: “The Chesterville Gathering Stitchers” and the “Wild & Woolies”, based in Finch.

Lest We Forget.
