Remembrance Day officially began back in 1921, when it was originally known as Armistice Day, and it continues to honour our veterans and fallen soldiers for their service to our country as it has for over 100 years. We will be taking a moment of silence at 11 am to remember all of those who have fought for our country.
Horsepower in WWI
Have you ever wondered how machinery during WWI was operated? Despite the lack of engine power on the front lines, soldiers were able to take advantage of the strength of horses and mules for a variety of tasks. We spoke with Dr. Ted Clark, president of the Vintage Veterinary Exhibit Association, to discuss the many ways in which horses and mules were used during the first world war.
Lilian Freiman made history through her organization of Canada’s Poppy Campaign and even sat as the chair of the campaign until her death in 1940. Her legacy continues to live on with the tradition of wearing poppies in November. If you know a woman in Alberta who is making history like Lilian Freiman, nominate her for the Women Making History in Alberta awards!
