BLUE skies and sunshine greeted a crowd that gathered in front of city hall in Terrace today, Remembrance Day, for the laying of wreaths at the city cenotaph.

The occasion was preceded by a service inside the Tillicum Twin Theatre and both were organized by the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 13.

The morning began with a parade assembling in the Safeway parking lot. It then marched down Lakelse Ave. to the theatre building.

After the service, at which silence was observed at 11 am, the parade reformed and marched down Lakelse Ave. again to stop at the cenotaph.

Afterward, a large crowd gathered at the Branch 13 building for refreshments and conversation.

Meanwhile, at the Happy Gang Centre, air cadets and members of the Scouting and Guiding movement in Terrace were provided with hot dogs and other foods.
