Please join us for this deeply important event to commemorate all
Newfoundlanders and Labradoreans who fought at Beaumont-Hamel (France)
in 1916. During the past six years, a large number of Newfoundlanders
and Labradorians have visited the National War Memorial to honour this
day in our history. Please ensure that this tradition continues and
pass on this message to any and every person in this region of Canada
who would want to participate in this tribute.
This year, members from The Atlantic Voices Choir will lead us in the
singing of the Ode to Newfoundland and the National Anthem. The
National War Memorial is located at the corner of Wellington and Elgin
Street in Ottawa.
