A quiet crowd of local residents gathered in front of the cenotaph at city hall for a Remembrance Day service Nov. 11.
Traditionally the gathering at the cenotaph is to observe the laying of wreaths but this year it was combined with the observance of the 11 a.m. silence, something which normally occurs at the Tillicum Twin Theatre.
Unchanged was the Remembrance Day parade which began at the Safeway parking lot, proceeding down Lakelse Ave. to the cenotaph.
Those observing the parade from the sidewalks along Lakelse Ave. followed behind.
At the front of the parade was the colour party of Branch 13 of the Royal Canadian Legion followed by the Terrace Pipes and Drums. A full range of federal, provincial and local government representatives, the RCMP, veterans, local emergency services organizations, service clubs and others were included in the parade numbers.
Wreaths were laid to remember those killed in each of the wars and conflicts in which Canadians were involved.
A wreath was laid representing Skeena - Bulkley Valley MP Taylor Bachrach, the federal government, the provincial government as represented by Skeena MLA Ellis Ross and the City of Terrace as represented by Mayor Sean Bujtas.
Music was provided by the Terrace Community Band and long-time Legion member Mary Ann Misfeldt led the singing of O Canada.
Trumpeter Andrew Johnstone played the Last Post leading into the 11 a.m. silence. It was followed by Audrey Kerr from the Terrace Pipes and Drums playing the Lament and Johnston playing the Reveille.
