The quickest moving parade ever, perhaps because of the cold weather and biting wind, was led by the Edmonton Base Contingent and the McBride Legion Colour Guard. WW11 Veteran and Dome Creek Resident Ken Hooker, now 87 years old, admits he told a small fib in order to be allowed to go into the Armed Forces earlier than he should have. Trumpeter and horn player Keith Berg participated in the service, this year led by Legion President Brad Kope. Following the parade, and wreath laying, many gathered to enjoy fellowship and a nice luncheon at the Legion Hall.
Elementary school students, led by teacher Lynn Lawless sang at the Remembrance Day services in Valemount. Members of the Valemount Atom hockey team laid a wreath, as did Alex MacDonald and Alice Olson, right, one of Valemount’s oldest Vets, asisted by Legion president Pete Pearson. The Valemount Branch was packed to capacity for the service.
