Remembrance DayAn outdoor Remembrance Day service in St. Norbert on November 11 will take place in front of a limestone cenotaph.

Held on St. Therese Avenue at Norbert Cemetery, the cenotaph is engraved with the names of 13 soldiers from St. Norbert who served and died in the first World War.

In 2008, Arthur Bloomfield noticed an overgrown cenotaph at the front of the Norbert Cemetery. He soon discovered that it was a memorial to WWI vets and ensured it was properly restored.

The ceremony will run from 10:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Refreshments will follow at the nearby Eagles Club, 3459 Pembina Highway.
