Revelstoke remembers

Images from the Nov. 11 Remembrance Day ceremony at the Revelstoke Cenotaph



Community members gathered at the Revelstoke Cenotaph on Nov. 11 to commemorate veterans and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Legion president Greg Brownlee noted that more Revelstoke veterans had passed over the year.

He also noted the Legion has installed a wheelchair lift from the main foyer of the building to their lounge. He thanked the Columbia Basin Trust, the Revelstoke Credit Union and the Branch #46 Ladies Auxiliary for raising the money to use it. “Without them we wouldn’t have it,” he said.

Mayor David Raven thanked community members for participating in the ceremony, noting it was the least we could do for those who have done so much for us.
