Bobcaygeon, Nov. 21 (Staff)—On Sunday, Nov. 11, under the auspices of the village and township councils and Ministerial Association, a very impressive Remem-brance Day service was held at the Arena.

Howard led in prayer and Rev. C. C. Miller read the Scripture lesson. Reeve H. J. Murphy read the names of the heroic dead of the village—Alex Devitt, Fred Devitt, Richard Dowding, Melville Gendron, John Kelso, Malcolm McIntyre, Donald Stewart, Floyd Watson and John Wright. The names of those of Verulam who gave their lives were read by Reeve Allan Thompson—Roy McCuIlum, Glenn Sheehey and Hall Thurston.
Two minutes' silence was observed and Last Post and Reveille sounded. The guest speaker Sqn. Leader Rev. Wilfred Butcher, was introduced by Rev. J. Cathcart.
A union service was held in the Presbyterian Church on Sunday evening, with Rev. P C. Howard, Rev. C. C. Miller and Rev. J. Cathcart taking part. Sqn. Leader Butcher was the guest speaker and special music was rendered by joint choirs of the three churches.
