Please take some time out of your day to join with others from the North Thompson Valley as we pay our respects to those who have served and are serving this Remembrance Day, Monday, Nov. 11, 2019.

If you are unable to attend a local event, we then ask that at 11 a.m. you remember by taking two minutes of silence and reflection for the brave men and women who have, and who continue to protect us all.

Ceremonies within the area include the following:
