The Queens County Advance - - COVER STORY - BY AETHNE HINCH­LIFFE Re­mem­ber­ing in Queens County. Mem­bers of the RCMP march in the pa­rade.

Liver­pool’s Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony was held un­der a blue sky as a cool, crisp wind blew.

The ser­vice be­gan with a pa­rade from the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion Branch 38 to the As­tor The­atre, where the cer­e­mony took place.

Inside the the­atre, peo­ple stood for the play­ing of O’ Canada, which was fol­lowed by the Last Post and a mo­ment of si­lence.

Hon. Col. John Leefe read the role of hon­our for the First World War and Andrew Maule read the role of hon­our for the Sec­ond World War and Korean War.

The cer­e­mony’s speaker was Lou Landry.

Af­ter a clos­ing prayer, the an­nual Re­mem­brance Day ser­vice was fin­ished, and peo­ple gath­ered out­side at the ceno­taph to lay wreaths and pop­pies. Then, the pa­rade once again marched to the beat of the drum as it headed away from the As­tor along Main Street.
