Honouring our soldiers

Remembrance Day services planned in Hope and Boston Bar

Coun. Tim Hudie and Mayor Susan Johnston lay a wreath during last year's Remembrance Day service in Hope.

The Hope Remembrance Day service takes place Tuesday (Nov. 11) in Memorial Park. The parade, which leaves the Legion at about 10:40 a.m. on route to the cenotaph, will feature a colour party, veterans, dignitaries, RCMP officers, firefighters, and local community groups. This year’s honour guards will be members of the 1789 The Royal Westminster Regiment Army Cadet Corps.

Walter Pankew and Ian Williams will MC the service, which includes two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. followed by piper Ian Newbigging playing lament. The Hope Secondary School band will then perform during the wreath laying. Residents are invited back to the Legion for lunch and refreshments following the service.

A Remembrance Day service will also be held in Boston Bar on Nov. 11. Parade participants will meet at North Bend Community Place at 10:30 a.m. and walk to the Memorial Site by the pool. Following the opening ceremony and singing of O’Canada, there will be a reading of In Flanders Field. Two minutes of silence will then be observed as well as lament, reply to In Flanders Fields, laying of wreaths, the Lord’s Prayers, and singing of God Save the Queen. Refreshments will be served at North Bend Hall following the service, courtesy of the Thrift Shoppe.
