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.
