North Rustico Knights & Students Honour Veterans

A group of Grade 9 students on P.E.I.’s North Shore pitched in to help North Rustico get ready for Remembrance Day — by lending a hand with the community’s display in honour of its veterans. 

The display features hundreds of tiny crosses, each bearing the name of a local veteran. The project was organized by the Knights of Columbus in 2020, and this year they asked a group of local students to help them set it up at the local cenotaph. 

“It’s very important for the Knights of Columbus, and for the community, to make a connection with the youth today so that they can remember, and hopefully we pass the torch to the next generation,” said James Donnelly, grand knight with the Knights of Columbus (KOC).

“I think the students probably have a connection, they probably have a relative or a great-grandfather or a great-uncle in this list of names here. I hope that they understand that it’s a connection to their past.”
