A Remembrance Day ceremony serving three municipalities was held at the Bryson cenotaph Saturday afternoon, bringing the communities together to pay their respects to past and present service members.
The Royal Canadian Legion Pontiac Branch 162 led the ceremony, as a procession, trumpet playing and wreath laying took place.
Over 30 wreaths were laid, representing or honouring many within the communities, and the service was conducted in a traditional fashion, featuring “O Canada,” a reading of “In Flanders Fields” by Patricia Godin and the “Last Post,” played on trumpet by Nora Thompson. Flags were flown high the entire ceremony, with Denis LaSalle holding the Canadian flag, David Hill hoisting the Legion flag and Perry Hill held the Quebec one.
