SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – The ‘No Stone Left Alone’ initiative was underway, starting Nov. 1.
The initiative involves middle school students honouring and recognizing the sacrifices that Canadian Military men and women made while serving Canada. In November, ‘No Stone Left Alone’ ceremonies across Canada have students place a poppy on military headstones in Canadian fields of honour.
No Stone Left Alone brought 41 Elm Street Elementary students to their knees Thursday, as they decorated veterans’ graves with poppies at St. Paul’s Cemetery in Summerside.
The Island schedule for the initiative involves:
– Nov. 1: 9:30 a.m., Eliot River Elementary School at Sherwood Cemetery, 355 Sherwood Road, Charlottetown
– Nov. 2: 10:30 a.m., Elm Street Elementary School at St. Paul’s Catholic Cemetery, 289 Rue Winter Street, Summerside
