For those who plan on watching, the solemn walk down Birch Avenue in 100 Mile House begins at 10:30 a.m.

Marchers will walk from First Avenue and Birch Avenue to the cenotaph in front of the community hall.

For those who plan on participating, they must gather in front of the 100 Mile House Elementary School, says The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #260-100 Mile House secretary Rick Smale.

Participants should meet at 10:15 a.m. on the west side of Birch Avenue.”

Smale notes those marching in the parade this year include a bagpiper, cadets led by the Sergeant of Arms, the RCMP, veterans and the Rangers.

Hotdogs and hot chocolate will be served at the community hall for the children.

For the adults, there will be an open house potluck luncheon at the Legion at 933 Alder Ave. after the service.

Staff at the Legion will all be volunteering that day,” Smale says, adding he wishes to thank them for their contribution.
