Prince George Remembers
Prince George, B.C. – A standing room only crowd packed into the Prince George Civic Centre this morning for this year’s Remembrance Day ceremony.
The mood was sombre and at times emotional – as young and old remembered those who both gave their lives and served our country in order to secure our freedom.
Veterans spanning several decades of conflict were on hand- those who served during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Afghanistan and in peacekeeping missions.
Members of the RCMP were also recognized for putting their lives on the line every day at work.
Emotion filled the air as Henk Bekkering from the Dutch community and MLA Shirley Bond remembered the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands.
Following the laying of the wreaths a parade assembled outside and marched off to the cenotaph. A reception at the Legion (1116 6th Ave) will follow.
