PHOTOS: Tri-Cities remembers the fallen during Nov. 11 ceremonies, private events

There were no public events scheduled due to COVID-19, but local residents and officials took the time to honour those who served.

Remembrance Day 2021 looked about the same as last year.

Private ceremonies and gatherings took place across the Tri-Cities out of respect for the public's health and safety during the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This includes wreath-laying ceremonies in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody at cenotaphs in the communities.

Legions in all three municipalities also hosted their own events featuring pipe bands and guest speakers.

Dignitaries were invited to the Thursday (Nov. 11) functions, while local residents marked the occasion in their own ways.

Some visited the cenotaphs after the formal ceremonies, or watched from a distance, as a way to honour local veterans, fallen soldiers and active military members.

Before getting the day off, local schools also commemorated Remembrance Day by crafting poppies for their classrooms.
