The Royal Canadian Legion Mulhurst Branch #246 Alberta held their annual Remembrance Day ceremony Nov. 11.

The Royal Canadian Legion Mulhurst Branch #246 Alberta would like to thank all those that supported our veterans by attending the Remembrance Day Service at the Mulhurst Bay community Hall. It means so much to those that gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy our lives in peace.

As this was the 100th anniversary of the famous poem “In Flanders Fields” penned by John McCrae on the battlefront on May 3rd 1915 during the third battle of Ypres in Belgium, the Royal Canadian Legion Mulhurst Branch #246 will like to extend a special sincere thanks to our last five remaining veterans.  Serving in the Second World War was Les Quimette, Ed Christopher, Bill Anderson and from the Korean War; Floyd Gieg and Walter Metz. We would also like to mention a special thanks to Derold Clark who unfortunately passed earlier this week at the age of 101.
