Scaled down Remembrance Day services in North Rustico

Story and photos by Jim Brown

The pandemic took a toll on Remembrance Day services across the country and on PEI on Nov 11. But in North Rustico, even though there were no guest speakers, more than 100 people converged on Veterans Memorial Park to pay their respects to Canada’s veterans. Visitors heard the mournful sounds of bugles and pipes. They were also greeted by more than 400 six-inch-high crosses, placed by Knights of Columbus volunteers in honour of veterans from North Rustico and surrounding area.
