Sioux Lookout remembers, honours Canada’s fallen soldiers
Sioux Lookout and area residents gathered at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 78, on Nov. 11 for a Remembrance Day parade to the Town Beach cenotaph, followed by a ceremony at the Legion.
The parade featured members of the Legion, the Sioux Lookout 270 Otter Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, Canadian Armed Forces, police officers, paramedics, and more. The group marched down to the cenotaph from the Legion where they laid wreaths and honoured fallen soldiers.
A packed crowd filled the upper Legion Hall for a Remembrance Day ceremony led by Legion president Dennis Leney, which featured a moment of silence, lying of wreaths, and a slideshow displaying photos of soldiers from Sioux Lookout.
