CENTRAL PEACE MARKS REMEMBRANCE DAY: Area residents gathered yesterday – the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour – to mark Remembrance Day and honour Canada’s veterans. The ceremony began with a march, led by Central Peace first responders, from the Spirit River Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 72 building to the Centennial Hall, where wreath-laying by families, churches, government agencies as well as municipalities was held. A two-minute silence was also observed. This year's Remembrance Day ceremony commemorated the 75th anniversary of D-Day, when allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944 – an effort that would eventually lead to the liberation of Nazi-occupied France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
