Remembrance Day Parade In Arkona

Arkona has an annual Remembrance Day Parade – young and old alike take part, and it is a true show of respect.  I had the honour of being able to take part this year with our children, explaining in advance what the parade was for, and why it was so important.  We have a special connection with Grandpa Cliff who fought in the war, and has so many interesting stories and memories; he also has the shrapnel imbedded in his hand still, a constant reminder of a horrible time.  Lest we forget.
