District of Barriere Mayor Ward Stamer is shown on Oct. 20, being pinned with a poppy by Barriere Legion Poppy Chairperson Linn Buker to launch the Royal Canadian Legion’s National Poppy Campaign within the community. The Barriere Legion advises, “Remembrance Day in Barriere will be very different this year. The parade to the cenotaph will not be taking place, and there will be no Nov. 11, regular Remembrance Day Service or large gathering inside the Legion building due to the COVID-19 virus. At 11 a.m. there will be a few wreaths laid outside at the Legion Cenotaph for the different levels of government, for the veterans, and for the fallen soldiers. The bar will then be open after that with a limit of 50 people.” (Tasha Buchanan photo)
