90th Annual Decoration Day held at Gadsby Omega Cemetery

Gadsby Omega Circle hosted the 90th Annual Decoration Day at the Gadsby Omega Cemetery Cenotaph on Sun. Aug. 30. The two-hour ceremony was like Remembrance Day but in the summer: Full of impactful remarks, wreath laying, march of the colours and celebration of the 100th year of the traditional red poppy worn on the lapel. Each soldier from war, mostly World War I and World War II, graves were marked with a Union Jack flag to show their service. Seen here is the final march of the colours led by Royal Canadian Legion Stettler Branch president Stephen LaRose holding the Canadian Flag. ECA Review/T.Huxley
