Bells of Peace, Georgetown Cenotaph, Sunday, Nov 11, 4:30-5:30 pm

Remembrance Day Bells of Peace Service

Sunday November 11th 2018

Time: 4:30pm – 5:30pm
Location: Georgetown, On the corner of James Street and Charles Street

There are a number of Remembrance Day services and events happening in the Town of Halton Hills this weekend. Residents are invited to pay tribute to the past and present members of the Canadian Armed Forces by joining us at the once in a lifetime, special Bells of Peace Service that takes place at sunset on November 11th. Members of the community are welcome to meet at the Georgetown Cenotaph by 4:30 pm.

November 11, 2018 will mark the monumental gathering in France and Belgium on the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of the end of the Great War, the final events which will bring to a close four years of Remembrance and reflection – a centenary that will also no doubt include various events and ceremonies that will take place across Canada.

The Royal Canadian Legion will assist in commemorating this historical 100th centenary, through the introduction of a Bells of Peace Initiative to honour through Remembrance, the Armistice of 1918.

The general concept derives from the use of bells as a celebratory announcement that the war had ended. This was common at the end of both WW1 and WW11. The Legion’s intent is to have every bell in every community across Canada ring in unison or independently (within each community) 100 times at sunset on November 11th, 2018 to signify the 100th anniversary of the WW1 Armistice.

The over 80 entrants feature floats with  many lights, making it truly a memorable evening. Of course the main feature is the arrival of Santa Claus who rides in the Lions Club Sleigh.

The parade starts at Sinclair Ave. and Guelph St. in Georgetown and goes west along Guelph turning left on Mill St. to Charles St., finishing at the Georgetown Fairgrounds Park. The parade assembles on Sinclair Ave, and Todd Rd.  Registrants are encouraged to arrive via Todd Rd. at Mountainview Rd. N.

Like all community events the Lions Club relies on civic minded businesses for their  support, In 2017 we introduced a new category of sponsorship called Community Champions and with their support the Club was able to operate the event. As part of their sponsorship the company names were placed on the Lions Events Trailer.


Each year we ask the community for help in running this event. We need over 100 volunteers to undertake a variety of  tasks, we can gurantee the best view of the parade. If you are interested please send an email to Lion Louie at

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will be lifted. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

More about the Artists:
Frontperson is the new project from Kathryn Calder (vocalist and keyboardist for The New Pornographers) and Mark Andrew Hamilton (who has released 6 albums as Woodpigeon). The songs of their debut album ‘Frontrunner’ make for an auspicious debut, forging a union between two of Canada’s finest songwriters. Be it Calder’s fluttering vocals on ‘Young Love’, the crashing percussion and crumbling instruments of ‘The City is Mine’, the hushed and pulsing elegy of ‘Insight’ or the layered queer epic ‘He Follows Me’, ‘Frontrunner’ marks Frontperson’s musical territory as unique and altogether new.

More about the Host:
We live in the country on an acre of property, it’s very quiet and serene. Very unexpected when we’re only 45 minutes from the city. Across the street from us is hundreds of acres of farmland….it’s a beautiful backdrop for an intimate outdoor concert.
