Remembrance Day in Ashcroft

Clear skies and mild temperatures made for pleasant Remembrance Day services in Ashcroft.

Ashcroft’s Remembrance Day services were observed by a smaller crowd than normal, even though the weather was mild.

The Ashcroft Legion conducted the services, Glenn Joss emcee’ing the event, with assistance from the Legion’s Chaplain, Martina Duncan, Frank Mierau who led the singing and John Pierro who offered blessings on behalf of the Bonaparte Indian Band. Cache Creek Mayor John Ranta spoke about democracy and public service, and the cadets provided guards at the Cenotaph.
