Join in Saturday, October 20th at the Benares Historic House (1507 Clarkson Road North) for an informative, interactive and improvisational evening of history brought to life!

First World War Victory Party and Remembrance of Armistice Day in 1918. Heritage Mississauga is pleased to announce that Remember 11-11 will be at Haunted Mississauga.

This year, Remembrance Day, November 11, will mark the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I. To commemorate this occasion, City of Mississauga Parks & Forestry is engaging the community in a yearlong project with the goal of painting a minimum of 1,111 wooden poppies by Remembrance Day.

The poppies will be painted on wood from ash trees that fell victim to the Emerald Ash Borer at community events throughout the year.

On Remembrance Day, the poppies will be displayed together as one large poppy with others being left on the graves of veterans in the cemeteries and cenotaphs managed by Parks & Forestry before being chipped and recycled in the City’s parks and trails system at the conclusion of the project.
