A smaller, more intimate setting at Eatonia Oasis Living helped put on a very good Remembrance Day service on Saturday.
The service was held at 2:00 PM on Saturday as residents and workers at the seniors home were all in attendance. Family and friends along with other residents from around Eatonia were invited as well.
EOL's own Ted Douglas, Moorease Scott, and Lloyd Martin sat in the front row. Douglas and Scott were given special recognition for their commitments to the Canadian military during wartime, Douglas as a domestic plane mechanic during WW2, and Scott who stepped away from serving in 1999 after many missions overseas.
The service began with the usual introductions, wreath laying, and playing of the last post. A local Eaton School student read an original poem alongside 'In Flanders Fields' and other November 11 staples. Lunch and dessert was provided afterwards to cap off the first ever service held by Eatonia Oasis Living.
With tons of great feedback after the service, they are already looking forward to the potential of next year's important presentation.
