Tisdale marks Remembrance Day

FTLComm - Tisdale - Saturday, November 11, 2002

It was an honour to witness the march this morning from the Royal Canadian Legion to the RECPlex. Tisdale's proud Royal Canadian Mounted Police all but two dressed in their dress red serge led this morning's parade followed by a colour party including some of Tisdale's most honoured veterans then followed by the pride of this community our very own Air Cadet contingent.

Like so many Saskatchewan communities Tisdale has a large number of World War II veterans. Men who landed in Italy and fought their way through a campaign that began long before "D" Day and took a heavy toll on the forces from this part of the province. Todfay is time to remember and appreciate their sacrifice.

The future of this town and its people is the reason we remember it was for them that they responded to the call to defend their country and the way of life that they knew was well worth defending.

Though we look back in time, it is important to remember as well that we today are living the lives those who served in the past fought and many died for. They did so knowing this day and those of the future were worth their sacrifice.
