With its annual Nov. 11 Remembrance Day ceremony, the Millet Royal Canadian Legion Branch 229 not only encourages the community to pay its respects to the veterans of the First and Second World Wars but to the veterans of the Korean War and Afghanistan as well.

The Remembrance Day Service will be held at the Griffiths-Scott Middle School, with doors opening at 9 a.m. and the ceremony starting at 10:30 a.m.

“If we don’t remember our histories we’ll repeat it,” said Legion president Garry Smith.

“We need the young people of today to remember,” he added.

At 11 a.m. the room will hold two minutes of silence out of respect for the veterans of the Canadian military and a parade to the cenotaph will follow.

Along with the members of the Legion, the fire department, RCMP, federal, provincial and municipal dignitaries, Wetaskiwin Air Cadets, Millet Minor Hockey Association and Scouts Canada members will partake in the service.

Smith says when it comes to supporting the Legion and taking time to honour Remembrance Day, he feels Millet is one of the best communities in the province. “It’s standing room only in the gymnasium.”
