Simpcw First Nation held Remembrance Day Ceremonies at their cenotaph in Chu Chua on Nov. 11, 2020. It was a small gathering with Simpcw Acting Chief Jules Phillip officiating. Simpcw Elder William Pete presented the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ in the Shuswap language during the ceremony. Recognition of Simpcw veterans was given with the laying of wreaths and crosses on the cenotaph, and then an open microphone was available after the service for those who wished to speak. District of Barriere Mayor Ward Stamer, Councilor Donna Kibble, and CAO Bob Payette were in attendance at the service. Pictured is Simpcw Elder Rose Miller beside the cenotaph. (Nystoruk photo)
