The Summerland Legion will hold a Remembrance Day ceremony on Nov. 11, but once again it will be a small, scaled-back event.
Legion president John Dorn said the COVID-19 restrictions and directives will result in a small event this year, similar to last year’s ceremony.
Last year, a flag-raising ceremony was held at the Summerland Legion building. The ceremony was recorded and could be viewed online.
In previous years, before the COVID-19 pandemic, ceremonies were held at the cenotaph in Memorial Park. These past ceremonies drew thousands of people.
Remembrance Day ceremonies are held on Nov. 11, in order to honour those who have served or are continuing to serve during times of war conflict and peacekeeping.
More than 2.3 million Canadians have served during the country’s history, and more than 118,000 have died during military service.
