Come honour our veterans at the Remembrance Day celebration in Keremeos on Nov. 11.
The Remembrance Day program, organized by the South Similkameen Branch 192 (Keremeos), begins at 10:45 a.m. at the Legion with a form-up and march-off. The Royal Canadian Legion, RCMP, honour guard and colour party are all participating.
The cenotaph ceremonies will follow with the singing of O Canada by elementary school student Reiley Demchuk, then an opening prayer.
The Remembrance Day poem this year will be read by SESS student Tiffany Looney followed by the reading of the names of fallen comrades.
The Last Post, two minutes of silence, the lament and rouse take place at 11 a.m. The act of remembrance and tribute to the fallen will follow. The poem, In Flanders Fields, will be read by SESS student Nathan Frasch.
