            November 11 is a day for all Canadians to remember. On this day in 1918, the hostilities of World War One came to a close. Since then November 11 has been used as a time to remember and be grateful for the individuals who laid down their lives in the service of our nation and who are still fighting for our Country. St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Alberton invites the public to share an evening with them during their “Remember With Us” service, being held Thursday, Nov 7, beginning at 7 pm. There will be songs, readings, reflections and light refreshments.
            Leading the service through song will be St. Peter’s Choir and friends, composed of singers from many local churches. They will sing songs written about the Great War, but also the songs that got people through World War II, such as ‘Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,’ and, ‘We’ll Meet Again”. The audience is encouraged to sing along. There will be solo performances by Reverend Lynn McKinnon, special musical guests and readings by Reverend Andrew Mortimer and others. Merry Carruthers will be playing the piano for the service, as she has for the past four years. This will be the fifth annual Remember With Us service hosted by St Peter’s.
            In the past, there has been as many as 15 choir members volunteering their time, and there’s usually a full house in the audience. The service has been described as emotional and moving in previous years, but also fun for those who attend. St Peter’s Church welcomes everyone to join them that evening to remember. After the service, there will be a luncheon available to all. There is no cost to attend, and no donations are requested.
