A gloriously sunny morning helped spur large numbers of Revelstokians to attend Sunday’s Remembrance Day ceremony.
The community usually comes out by the hundreds but this year’s crowd could well have pushed 1,000. A number of people remarked on the size of the crowd later and all in all, this year’s ceremony appeared to be brighter and livelier than usual.Perhaps that, too was caused by the bright sunshine and almost un-natural lack of rain or snow.
As a nice little addendum to the annual ceremony, Marlene MacQuarrie, Long-time chaplain to Legion Branch 46, was presented with one of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals during a brief ceremony at the Legion.
Here are some photos from this year’s ceremony and medal presentation:
