Fallen Soldiers of Yesterday and Today Honoured at Remembrance Day Ceremony
Prairie Hall was filled during a Remembrance Day service in Provost on Wednesday morning, November 11 as tributes were made to those who gave up their lives fighting for freedom.

The Provost Ministerial Association organized the service.

O Canada was sung to begin the service, followed by the opening prayer by Reverend Joselito Cantel.

Pastor Brent Deering followed with a scripture reading where he said “We want to remember those that have gone on before us, and those that are going on before us.”

“Many willingly endure hardship and fear,” Deering said in reference to those that fought for our freedom, and explained that there is another who walks the battlefields. “Remember Him that gave his life once and for all.”

A hymn called God of the Living was then sung by the congregation. Greg Parker then shared the reading Act of Remembrance. A song eluding to the importance of the two minutes of silence, A Pittance of Time, was then played.

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae’s poem, “In Flanders Fields” was then read by Pastor Robert Bachmann.

The Last Post was heard followed by two minutes of silence and Rouse was then sounded.
