Heavy rain didn’t stop hundreds of people from marching from the AESS gymnasium to the Agassiz cenotaph on Friday morning.

Several dignitaries took part in the ceremony, including District of Kent Mayor Lorne Fisher and Harrison Hot Springs Mayor Ken Becotte. The Agassiz Cubs and Beavers marched along with veterans, as did members of the RCMP, the Fire Department, Ambulance Services, Royal Canadian Army Cadets and Corrections Canada.

A special wreath was set out by Leann Miller, wife of Warrant Officer Corey Miller, who is currently serving in Afghanistan.
