William Hall – Heritage Day Celebrations 2024

11 November 2023 | Remembrance Day Service - Hantsport

After the Second World War the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #109 in Hantsport was named “Lucknow” Branch for the battle from which William Hall earned his award, and is where he is buried with a special memorial cairn, located on the grounds of the Hantsport Baptist Church.

The Royal Canadian Legion “Lucknow” Branch #109 has organized this annual event until 2012. The Town of Hantsport took over the event until 2015, and a volunteer committee has continued on since then. The service is to recognize and remember community members who have served their country.

The Hantsport Remembrance Day service is open to the public and takes places in the Hantsport School Auditorium - 11 School St, Hantsport. Doors open 9:30am. The facility is wheelchair accessible. As there won’t be social distancing inside, attendees are free to wear a mask.
