Large crowd attends Remembrance Day Ceremony

Today's Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Campbell River Cenotaph was conducted under clear and pleasant conditions



A large crowd was on hand for today’s remembrance Day Ceremony at the Campbell River Cenotaph.

Clear skies and mild temperatures oversaw the traditional services that include hymns O Canada, God Save the Queen, two minutes of silence bookended by cannon fire and the traditional laying of wreaths.

Campbell River’s veterans marched in the parade led by the Campbell River Legion Pipe Band and escorted by the flags of the Legion colour party and representatives from the armed forces, the RCMP, Cadets and other youth groups.
