Flag Day

 Local Legions across Canada designate a day to honour veterans who have passed away and are buried in Local Cemeteries.  This year on September 29th Royal Canadian Legion Cupar Branch # 217, dressed in uniform, placed flags and poppies, and then saluted the graves of war veterans.

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of WWI.
There are number of WWI headstones to be found in the Cupar Cemetery. The Cupar and District Heritage Museum is presently planning to commemorate the anniversary through a variety of displays including photos, attestation papers, photographs, uniforms and other memorabilia. 

Stay tuned for details.
