When the sun goes down on Remembrance Day, bells will ring out across Keremeos and Cawston and the rest of Canada to commemorate the end of the First World War.
The Bells of Peace is taking place across the country to acknowledge 100 years since the signing of the armistice that ended the First World War.
Joan Popovich, one of the people who will ring the bells at the Anglican Church in Keremeos on Sunday night, said there is a group of about five people that are taking part in the momentous occasion.
“At 4:23 p.m. on Sunday night at sunset because, you know, they say at the going down of the sun that’s what happened in England when they heard the war was over bells rang all over the country,” she said.
Three people will ring bells at the Anglican church while two others will be at the Cawston United Church, Popovich said.
Although Popovich’s parents did not serve in the First World War she said her uncle did and earned a Victoria Cross.
“It’s going to be quite something,” she said.
