Remembering…

November 11, 2019, Remembrance Day in Barriere was both a somber and hopeful event. Somber in remembrance of all those who served and gave their lives, and appreciation for those who are still serving so our country can remain free.

It was also a hopeful event as Remembrance Day parades and services each year continue to draw more individuals and families who come out to pay their respects and recognize with thanks those who protect our freedom and way of life.
