Comrade John Robertson out on the town, offering poppies 6 Nov. 2021
the picture the Legionnaires are holding was taken and then donated to the legion by Lorraine Payette on 11 November 2021. I asked Lorraine about the story behind this picture and this is what she said ...
."the photo they are holding is one I took on November 11, 2018, when I was getting down to the Park a little early for the service. I had parked near the library and was coming in from behind the cenotaph, and with the fog and the light it just looked too perfect, so I took the shot. It came out better than I was expecting!
Holding the picture from left to right - Janet Gaylord, Bob Howard, Murray Salter and Shirley Howard.
We have a spot at the legion for it to hang. We hope to see Lorraine back in this town soon. Thank you Lorraine.
this beautiful picture was taken by Scotty Stoness on 11 Nov 2021 as he was facing King St. from behind the cenotaph in town park. Thank you for sharing Scotty.
Thank you so much for the poppies! Here is what I did with them!
At my house just outside of Newboro, Ontario.
My Grandfather was a medic in WWII.
Joseph Harold (Hal) Roach
He passed in December 2005.
He was a proud Legion member in Renfrew for years!
I have always tried to honour him and other veterans in one way or another for the first 11 days of November.
This year I decided to make a display at home. Did you notice his helmet sitting at the top? All the poppies cascade out from underneath it.
