The Royal Canadian Legion’s mission is to serve veterans, which includes serving military and RCMP members and their families, to promote remembrance and to serve our communities and our country.
On November 11, at the going down of the sun, communities across Canada will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with the ringing of 100 bells. The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end. Participating are:
St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, corner of N. Island Hwy and Dingwall Road, will be ringing their bell and at the same time a lone Piper will play The Battle’s O’er. Cadets, Legion, RCMP and Militia in attendance. A short service will follow. Several Common Wealth War Commission graves are found at St. Andrew’s Cemetery honouring soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the First and Second World Wars. The HMCS ALBERNI Museum and Memorial (HAMM) will be ringing the Remembrance Bell at the Museum lobby 100 times while reading the names of 100 service men and women who gave their lives in service to this country during the past 100 years. Spectators are invited to attend. If you would like to help us ring the bell, or have a service member you would like honoured on this day, please contact Bob Sackett at HAMM at 250 897-4611 or firstname.lastname@example.org HAMM's address is 625 Cliffe Avenue, Courtenay next to Bisque Restaurant in the Courtenay Mall. Christ The King Catholic Church, Tunner Drive was dedicated in 1992 , this brought all the Comox Valley Parishes into one Catholic Community. The Church will be ringing their electronic bells at sunset. St. George’s United Church, 6th Street and Fitzgerald ave was originally opened in 1913 on Fifth Street. In 1946 it was moved in its entirety to its present location without a sound from the bell in the tower. The Old Church Theatre on Harmston ave. The Canadian Martyrs Roman Catholic Church was constructed in 1938. The Old Church Theatre Society formed in 1992 to purchase the building, and to preserve it from destruction. The carillon (electronic bells) will be rung manually for this Remembrance. Courtenay council designated the building a heritage site in 1997.
