On June 6th, the Juno Beach Centre will hold a private ceremony which will not be open to the general public.
We rely on the understanding of all those who usually join us. The museum has reopened with limited capacity, staffing is not yet complete (our Canadian guides will arrive at the end of June). However, health measures still apply and enforcing the regulations requires staff we do not have this year.
We have all experienced the same closures, deprivations, frustrations. Thank you, therefore, out of solidarity and support, for showing goodwill towards our decision to hold a private ceremony.
This being said, starting at 12pm, anyone who wishes will be able to come to the museum for a time of brief remembrance and to lay flowers or any other mark of respect and remembrance at the statue “Remembrance and Renewal”. I personally will be available from 12pm to 6pm to commemorate together, in small groups. In the end, it will be a great opportunity for everyone to commemorate with sincerity and simple gestures.
I hope to see you soon.
Director of the Juno Beach Centre
