Charlottetown, PE - Students and staff at Holland College's Tourism and Culinary Centre observed a minute of silence today in honour of Remembrance Day.
The Tourism and Culinary Centre Student Association, which organized the minute of silence, also placed a large poppy in the entrance to the building for students and staff to sign in the days leading up to Remembrance Day. The messages range from simple signatures to messages and thanks, and include to the names of loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Bronwyn Ives, a student in the Hotel and Restaurant Management program and one of the organizers, said the initiative gave students the opportunity to express their support of members of the armed forces, and to honour relatives who lost their lives in service.
"As we express our gratitude this Remembrance Day, we must never forget that the greatest appreciation is not just to say the words, but to live by them," she said. The poppy will be presented to the Royal Canadian Legion.
