Remembrance Day Service was held at the Likely Community Hall On Sunday, November 11, 2018. Meinhart Kemph was our officiator this year while Claudine and Randy Kadonaga assisted in the programming.
Over thirty wreaths were laid at the cenotaph by community members in honor of those who served in the wars and serviced our country. Thanks to Howard and Elaine for the wreaths and to those who helped in preparing them for the ceremony.
Special thanks to Staff Sgt John Dryden and Cst. Graeme Jacques for driving out to Likely to be part of our service. Their presence, red uniforms and stature coupled with the red poppies made a statement of endurance for the ceremony, for the future. Their participation is greatly appreciated. Also thank you to Cst. Justin Federick for his presence.
The importance of this yearly event in our community is evidenced in the support of attendance by our community. Generations of families came out to remember the contributions of family members and friends in the wars of the past and present.
Visitors to our community traveled far to join in our service and along with local speakers and gave heartfelt tributes to the fallen.
Luncheon was served and enjoyed afterward in the Hall. Even though the sun shone on the event, warm beverages and lunch was welcomed afterward. Thanks to the ladies who worked to put it together for us.
Many thanks to everyone who participated and helped pull this event together. As the saying goes; ‘It takes a village.’
