The Peterborough Petes are proud to announce the details of a remembrance ceremony that will take place before Thursday’s game against the North Bay Battalion.
Prior to the game, Lieutenant-Colonel (Ret’d) Peter Dawe, a Director at the Juno Beach Centre Association, will take part in the ceremonial puck drop. 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. Throughout the month of November, Petes players will join other OHL teams in wearing a commemorative Juno Beach sweater patch. At the end of the month, a jersey will be auctioned off in support of the Juno Beach Centre Association.
The pre-game ceremony will also include the 2672 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps Flag Party, a bugler performing the Last Post, a special presentation prepared by PA Announcer Gord Gibb, and more.
Poppy pinners representing the Royal Canadian Legion will canvas each entrance of the PMC. Fans are encouraged to wear a poppy to show their support.
