100 Mile Royal Canadian Legion Gearing Up For Remembrance Day

The Remembrance Day service and march in 100 Mile House is nearing as poppy boxes are being distributed throughout the Cariboo.

Rick Smale, a Secretary for the Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 260 in 100 Mile House, talks about the service

“We always have a service at the community hall, it’s preceded with a march from the marching area behind coach house square. We usually lead off there at 10:30 and march down to the community hall. We have a full-fledged Remembrance Day Service there that lasts about 1 hour.”

Smale says the community is always very supportive year in and year out for Remembrance Day.

He estimates there is only a handful or two of veterans left in the area, with the oldest one being 98 years old.
