On April 9th, 2020 we ask the cadets of 211 Ottawa Kiwanis Squadron to remember those who fought in the Battle of Vimy Ridge (April 9th – 12th, 1917). We ask them to remember on the 103rd Anniversary, in a time where we cannot leave our homes, but can still take a moment of silence for those who came before us.
So on April 9th, we ask cadets and staff, wherever they may be, to don your uniform once again and share your remembrance. Further details are below.
Dress: Cadets C1, Staff 1A
Other Information: Light a candle (real or virtual), wear a poppy if you have one, observe 2 minutes of silence. Take a picture of yourself in uniform and tag @CadetsCa and @canadaremembers with the #RememberVimy on either Facebook or Instagram.
