Snow puts an end to an extended, mild autumn

Meota News: Memorial Hill an appropriate place for Remembrance Day observance

MEOTA ‑ Now we have snow, but certainly have appreciated the long fall we enjoyed. The Canada geese are not happy and will be leaving soon. 

Gill Cadrin and his sons Tal and Evan chose to go to Memorial Hill for the 11th hour on Remembrance Day. Leo and Trudy Janssens were able to share with the Cadrin’s how significant Remembrance Day is for them. As Dutch immigrants, the Janssens will be forever grateful to the Canadians who liberated Holland. Seeing the Allied tanks roll through Holland is Leo’s earliest childhood memory.
