Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held in the Town of Brome Lake but under very different circumstances due to COVID-19.

Following instructions from Quebec Provincial Command of the Royal Canadian Legion, ceremonies will be held by invitation only as we are only permitted to have a maximum of 25 people. For the first time, spectators are discouraged from attending due to space and the requirement to physically distance. The invited guests, namely those laying wreaths, will be required to remain two meters apart and will need to wear a mask.

Brome Branch 23 would like to thank all citizens of TBL for their past support and we thank all local organizations for purchasing a wreath this year. We look forward to having the public with us again in 2021.

A Poppy campaign will be held beginning October 30th with poppies located in various stores. We thank you in advance for supporting the Poppy Campaign.

Should you require more information, feel free to contact Margaret Pille, Secretary, Brome Branch 23: 450-243-5302.
