LETHBRIDGE, AB – A few different ways in Lethbridge that you can mark Remembrance Day Thursday, November 11.

A service at the Cenotaph downtown will be live-streamed while a smaller, reduced service will also take place at Mountain View Cemetery. It will not be live-streamed.

You can attend in person, however officials say social distancing will be in place.

Both services begin at 11:00 am Thursday morning and if you plan to watch online, you can find a link on the Lethbridge Legion Facebook page here: Lethbridge Legion LIVE

There will also be a fly past by two CT-155 Hawk Trainers courtesy of 15 Wing Moose Jaw from 2 Canadian Forces Flying School.

The smaller service at Mountain View was originally set to include the 20th Independent Field Battery firing off a 105 mm Field Artillery Howitzer to mark the moment of silence, however that gun salute has now been cancelled.

There will also be Remembrance Day ceremonies in other communities around the region, including in Stirling where a new Cenotaph has just been installed there.
