Sunday November 11: Remembrance Day at Springwater Park, by AWARE SIMCOE

By Aware SIMCOE and Ontario Parks.

Ontario Parks is honoured to have this WW1 cenotaph in Springwater.

Originally erected in honour of “The Vespra Boys” from Vespra Township who sacrificed so much in the First World War.

Springwater Park was the location of Remembrance Day ceremonies from the 1920’s to the 1950’s.

In 2012 community volunteer groups came forward in a significant way.

Wayne Cameron organized the first Remembrance Day ceremony in the park in over 50 years and continues to do so annually.

Remembrance Day Ceremony – All Welcome!

Sunday – November 11

This year is the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I and signing of the Armistice on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour.

Springwater Provincial Park provides the most peaceful, serene, and natural backdrop for a solemn ceremony of this kind.

We welcome veterans and community groups or individuals to join us as we honour the Springwater Park Cenotaph for the Vespra Boys.
