The Sod Busters Archives Museum in Strome, Alta. hosted a Remembrance Day Service at the cenotaph Mon. Nov. 11.
The attendance this year far surpassed other years with over 70 youth, adults and seniors coming out to honour our war veterans as well as those in active service for our country.
The Wavy Lake 4-H Beef Club were in full force and together recited the poem by John McCrae, ‘In Flanders Fields’.
The Last Post, the Moment of Silence and the Reveille, was followed by a Prayer of Remembrance by emcee Gloria Swain.
This was followed by The Act of Remembrance by Sharon Darling and The Commitment to Remember by Joyce Dalueg and wreaths were laid followed by a Prayer of Thanksgiving which concluded with everyone reciting the Lord’s Prayer together.
Our Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph concluded with the singing of O Canada very ably led by Roger Toth.
A hot soup and sandwich lunch was served at the Strome Seniors Centre.
The proceeds from the lunch donations amounted to $130 and will be donated to the Killam Legion.
