Remembrance Day, November 11, is a day of observance to honour and remember those soldiers who served and sacrificed for Canada. Building on the success of last year's painted wooden poppy project, the City's Parks, Forestry & Environment Division plans to continue to engage the community in a project with the goal of constructing a minimum of 1,111 poppies out of wildflower seed balls in an effort to also support our native pollinators. The seed balls will be created by residents and community groups at events throughout the year.
The poppy seed balls will be laid as a collective display November 9-11, 2019, at Celebration Square, before being used in our natural areas to promote the growth of our native wildflowers and provide habitat for pollinators.
To commemorate the centennial of the outbreak of the First World War in 2014, Heritage Mississauga documented soldiers from historic Mississauga who served and fell during the war.
During the First World War, Canadian soldier Lieutenant-Colonel George Stephen Cantlie plucked flowers from the fields of war-torn Europe, sending them home to his baby daughter Celia in Montreal.
