We Remember

To our veterans…

…our fallen, and to those who have served, Pilar’s Catering would like to give our heartfelt thanks for continuing to keep our country free.

On November 11, we provide silent reflection in honour of those soldiers who fought to keep Canada free from oppression, and to give respect to those who still stand and give their unwavering support in service to our country. In recognition of the brave men and women who gave their lives, we stand, in silence at 11 a.m., and recognize the end of World War One that occurred at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, 1918.

The wearing of a red poppy on the lapel to commemorate Remembrance Day on November 11 was due to the poem “In Flanders Fields”, which was written by a Canadian physician, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, as these poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, and their brilliant red colour became a symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

To our veterans, and to those who have served, we offer our respect and undying gratitude.

Thank you.
