Remembrance Sunday

Residents participated in the art and crafts activity with creative minds; making their very own poppy memorial, while listening to old war time songs. They enjoyed a sing along and discussing their memories of the war and their contributions towards the war.

Remembrance Sunday was spent watching the parade followed by the movie, ‘War Horse.’
