WOW we are a small community but mighty! The Merrickville Legion truly thanks everyone that supported the 2020 Remembrance Day and Poppy Campaign. Those that attended the Cenotaph on Nov.11, social distanced and wore masks. Thank-you to Village staff for blocking off the street and allowing us a larger, safer area for everyone. We hope that you took the” Walk of Honour” to the Cenotaph that honoured the WWI and WWII young men that left our community to fight for our freedom but never returned home. Those brave young men from Merrickville, Jasper, Easton’s Corners, Burritt’s Rapids and surrounding area made the ultimate sacrifice.
