MEMBERS of the public helped shield the four cadets posted at the cenotaph in front of Terrace city hall from a cold rain yesterday. The cadets belong to the 747 Air Cadet Squadron in Terrace.

Remembrance Day service held in Terrace, B.C.

Cold rain fell during laying of wreaths at cenotaph in front of city hall

A PELTING cold rain marked Remembrance Day in Terrace yesterday as citizens gathered first at the Tillicum Twin Theatre for a service and then at the cenotaph in front of city hall for the laying of wreaths.

A message read at the service by Mary Ann Misfeldt of Branch 13, The Royal Canadian Legion, set the tone inside the building for the well-attended occasion.

The Terrace Community Band provided the music for the service.

Following the service, the official parade of the Legion’s colour guard, the Terrace Pipes and Drums followed by members of the RCMP, veterans, the Canadian Rangers, firefighters, elected officials and members of various service groups wound its way down Lakelse Ave. to the cenotaph.

A prayer was given by Salvation Army Captain Deb VanderHeyden prior to the laying of wreaths.

In addition to official wreaths from all levels of government, the Legion, RCMP, firefighters and groups such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, individual wreaths from families were also placed at the cenotaph.

Members of the public, holding umbrellas, shielded the four cadets from the 747 Air Cadet Squadron posted at the corners of the cenotaph from the rain.

As was the case last year, a RCMP officer armed with a semi-automatic weapon kept watch during the proceedings.

The practice was put in place following the Oct. 2014 shooting on Parliament Hill.
