Memorial Day --> Canada Day in Clarenville

July 1 was much anticipated this year.   The day had two very distinctive parts: Part 1, the somber remembrance of the tragedy of Beaumont Hamel and Part 2 - the joy of Canada Day.

This year - and next year are significant for each of the two parts.   This year marked the 100th anniversary of Beaumont Hamel and it brought out several hundred residents to honor the Newfoundland men and women who gave their all in WW1.   Next year marks the 150th anniversary of Canada and this year's pre year celebrations brought out many young and old alike.
