Hi, I’m Gandy!

This year, I’m going to make a wreath to honour everyone who protected peace and freedom worldwide, like my relative, Gander the dog.

I’m going to go to a Remembrance Day ceremony on November 11 where I will place my wreath at the local monument, called a cenotaph. Would you like to make a wreath too?
