The Knitted Poppies
Jo-Ann Duns from Hagersville United Church writes:
"The poppy is the enduring symbol of Remembrance of the First World War and lied in the landscapes on the Western Front. When visiting St. Nicholas Church in Rochester, Kent, England last year, we noticed that the church was decorated with over 7000 poppies that were hand knitted by members of the church as well as people from their community. It was so awe inspiring that in January, I asked several church members, members of the community and my knitting club to knit poppies for me. I supplied the wool and they knitted. I also figured out how to crochet a poppy. Throughout the year, I received the poppies and filled a Rubbermaid container with over 700 poppies. They are on display at Hagersville United Church as “We Remember” all those that died during all the wars but especially remembering the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the turning point in World War II. A special word of thanks to all those that helped to make this happen. These poppies will be placed every year from this year forward to remember all who served and continue to serve our country and beyond to keep peace in our world. God Bless"
