On this day, we do not celebrate war, but the willingness of our veterans to serve, sacrifice and protect, and we remember the thousands who never returned. We remember also the unsung civilian heroes, who fought and died, never wearing uniforms. In a larger sense, we also mark the tremendous price paid by all people affected by war and conflict. Whether you remember someone specifically, or contemplate the impact of war in a general sense, thank you for taking time to remember.
We don't usually award our 'Volunteer of Note' to the same person two seasons in a row, but we're making the exception for Bob Aggerholm. Bob has been diligently working on our Digitisation Project since the spring, assisting collections co-ordinator, Bethany Hayward, with scanning and editing of hundreds of photographs. Thank you, Bob, for all you do for us!
