We found this in the archives, and I think you will all agree, it’s a real treat! For those who have had the privilege of hearing Uncle Nap tell the story in person, and those who have not, this is sure to be an enjoyable listen. Grab yourself a coffee or a beverage, as it’s a 27 minute run, but well worth it! Enjoy!

Unfortunately, the current Covid-19 restrictions on outdoor gatherings prevent us from hosting our traditional Remembrance Day service at the St. Joseph Memorial Park this year.
Instead we will be livestreaming a brief service from the park on our Facebook (FB) page. If you are a FB user, you can join us online by liking and following our FB page – “SJAHS” @ – and tuning in at approximately 10:50 a.m. on Wednesday, November 11th.
If you are unable to join us on Facebook for the live event, we will also post a recording of the service shortly afterwards at our website,
