Remembrance Day 2015 – Valemount and McBride

Photos: Korie Marshall, Monica Marcu and Mike Podina

McBride and Valemount weathered winter temperatures to pay tribute to veterans at this year’s 2015 Remembrance Day ceremonies. So many people showed up to the Valemount ceremony that no everyone could fit into the Legion. The ceremonies began with parades, followed by laying of wreaths at the cenotaphs, music, and words.
