Kitimat held it’s Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Day, November 11th. There was snow on the ground and in the air, but it did not stop the people of Kitimat from coming out to Remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.
Reverend Larry Scott, the Legion Chaplain, piped the bagpipes and led the prayers. Mayor Joanne Monaghan, Comrade Marg Bogaert and Comrade Merle Archer gave readings.
At 11:00, a moment of silence was given followed by the laying of the wreaths. Following the ceremony, refreshments were served at the Legion.
“Lest we forget,” said Bogaert. “I say that because we do not want to forget the veterans of all the various wars going back to World War One, why they laid down their lives for us, for our soveriegn, our country and for how we live today.”

Thank you for this. I couldn't be at the cenotaph yesterday because of illness and so I very much appreciate the pictures and story.
