Barriere Legion Branch 242 held a closed Remembrance Day Ceremony this year on Nov. 11, due to COVID-19.

However, the event was live streamed over the Barriere Legion and the Barriere Star Journal Facebook pages, which experienced many viewers logging on to watch the service.

Immediately following the indoor closed service Legion executive members and Pastor Todd English laid two wreaths and a number of poppies on the outdoor cenotaph.

A small group of area residents who had gathered outside the Legion building also placed poppies on the cenotaph in memory of loved ones and those who had served.
