Wellington County remembers (12 photos)

The names of Wellington County's 503 fallen read aloud as part of We Will Remember Them ceremony

One by one, their names were read allowed Monday on a cold and blustery day at the Wellington County Museum and Archives.

The annual We Remember Them ceremony took place on the museum's front lawn.

Attended by roughly 75 people, the names of the 503 Wellington County residents who have died in conflict serving their country were read aloud ed by representatives of the legion branches in their various communities.

Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott also said a few words.

The lawn of the museum and archives is now adorned with 503 markers containing a red poppy on one side and the names and service information of the 503 men and women on the other.

On Friday at 5:30 p.m., tribute candles will be lit in front of each of the 503 markers.
