Poppy wreath layers sought

Organizers of the upcoming Remembrance Sunday ceremony are inviting individuals or religious organizations to lay wreaths at the annual event commemorating the war dead. 

The Remembrance Sunday ceremony will take place at the Elmslie Memorial Church in George Town on Nov. 8, starting at 10:45 a.m. 

Each year, Remembrance Day honors the military heroes who lost their lives in World Wars I and II. In Cayman, mariners lost at sea are also honored on Remembrance Day. 

Wreaths made of red poppies are laid in memory of those who died at war or at sea. The red poppy has been used as a symbol since 1921 to commemorate soldiers who died in war. 

Those who wish to lay wreaths at the Cenotaph or at the Seaman’s Memorial should contact Meloney Syms at the Protocol Office on 244-3612 or email [email protected] by Nov. 4. 

Poppy wreaths will be placed on the Cenotaph and Seaman’s Memorial on Nov. 8.
