The weather was brisk but pleasant on Nov. 11, as people gathered for the Remeberance Day ceremony at the Nakusp Cenotaph.
A service at the Royal Canadian Legion started the day off, followed by a parade of veterans and representatives from the Legion to the Cenotaph.
The ceremony was led by Nakusp veteran Harvey Truax, with prayers from pastor Dan Freeman and bagpipes by Gerry Conway. Watching over the ceremony and the wreath laying were air cadets Chiara and Alanna Minchin of Nakusp, alongside Max Stevens, Riley Thompson, and Nat MacIntosh of Nelson. Squadron officer Kevin Debiasio accompanied the cadets.
The Legion was host to those wishing to view the poppy contest entries and enjoying light refreshments after the ceremony.
Truax also let attendees know that at 4:14 p.m., the bells of the Anglican cathedral would toll 100 times, joining the chorus across Canada to honour the 100 years since the end of the First World War.
