On November 11 we take a day from our work to reflect on the ravages of war.  While people in uniforms  carrying swords and guns gather at the Cenotaph we assemble at the Spirit of the Republic to hear other stories from other survivors.  Our event is meant to be the sharing of stories from all comers.  We’re inviting you to share your experiences, songs and poems.  


            White poppies will be available free of charge. 


Date:  November 11, 2013
