Disappointing Remembrance Day Turnout
I was very disappointed at the attendance this year. From where I was sitting, it looked like less than half the seats were occupied! In many years past it was standing room only!
The members of the Royal Canadian Legion in Acme work very hard to present this ceremony every year. I'm sure they were disappointed at the low turnout, too. I don't know the reasons for the small crowd this year. Perhaps folks were attending a larger event elsewhere.
I'm asking the Legion members not to be discouraged. I'm sure this was just a glitch and attendance will be up again next year.
Lest We Forget.
