Local Resident Reminds Us to Remember

by Shanine Sealey

For the past ten years, Martensville resident Jan Diehl has helped remind others of the importance of Remembrance Day by creating a display in her yard on Rock Hill Lane. Each year, Diehl adds to the display, which, for the past two years has included a tribute to those who have lost their lives in Afghanistan.

“I do it because I want Remembrance Day to stand out in people’s minds, so it isn’t forgotten,” Diehl stated.

The display, which consists of poppies, flags, crosses, wreaths, information and more, has drawn residents from Martensville and surrounding areas, as well as local schools to come and learn more about those that have fought for our country.
