As more and more of the traditional sponsors of Kimberley’s Remembrance Day service are no longer operating — such as the Legion Branch and the Air Cadet Squadron — it’s up to the community to keep it going.
And the community is doing just that. This year’s service will go at the same time and place as every year —the Cenotaph at 11 a.m.
The parade will muster in front of the Elks Hall on Howard Street at 10:30 a.m. and march off through the Platzl at 10:45 a.m. Any groups such as Boy Scouts or Girl Guides who wish to march should meet at that time.
The Kimberley Fire Department will be there, along with Kimberley RCMP Detachment members, the Kimberley Pipe Band and the Kimberley Community Band. The Elks Club will provide the colour guard.
After the service the community is invited for lunch at Harvey Nash Hall at the Elks Club.
