Wellington County Remembers is an outdoor exhibit on the front lawn of the Museum that takes place November 6th, the official start to Remembrance Week across Canada. 503 Markers, with the names of the fallen from Wellington County from the First World War, the Second World War, Korea and Afghanistan, are placed on the lawn. At a special Remembrance ceremony, members of the Legions from across Wellington County come and read the names of the fallen aloud. Then, on the evening of November 10th, candles are lit at every marker, and they remain lit until the morning of November 12, burning throughout Remembrance Day, November 11.
Now, our special Wellington County Remembers Database brings the names on the markers to life through photographs, letters, attestation papers, and service records.All A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Reset
