Hundreds of people braved cold temperatures on Tuesday to honour Canada’s soldiers and veterans at the Hope Memorial Park Cenotaph on Remembrance Day.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Memorial Park cenotaph on Tuesday for Hope’s Remembrance Day service.

The annual parade from the Hope Legion featured veterans, local dignitaries, RCMP officers, firefighters, service clubs, cadets and a flag party. Walter Pankew and Ian Williams led the service, which featured piper Ian Newbigging playing lament, two minutes of silence, and the Hope Secondary School band performing during the wreath laying. Residents were then invited back to the Legion for lunch and refreshments after the service.
