Remembrance Day ceremonies were held across the Central Okanagan on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Ceremonies were held at the City Park cenotaph in Kelowna and at George Elliot

Secondary School in Lake Country.

Legion members manned colour guards, and joined current members of Canadian Armed Forces, as well as RCMP and emergency first responders to march through the streets to reach cenotaphs where wreaths were laid in memory of all who have served in military armed combat.
