Pictured (l-r): The Barriere Legion Branch 242 Remembrance Day Parade was a fairly large affair for a small community, with Legion officer Vern Buker, and Rocky Mountain Rangers Lieutenant Marc Tremblay marshalling the parade. Parade participants included the Legion, Rocky Mountain Rangers Cadets, District of Barriere Mayor Ward Stamer, members of Council, Barriere Search and Rescue, Barriere Lions, Barriere Fire Rescue, Barriere First Responders, North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association Ambassadors, as well as a number of other organizations and area residents.

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.
