Morinville Remembers

Like many community’s Morinville’s Remebrance Day observance took on a different form this year. Sturgeon County and Morinville joined in asking residents to stand on their porches to remember.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 176 held their traditional ceremony with a small number of dignitaries. The service was streamed on The Legion’s Facebook page and shared by both the Town of Morinville and this publication, the former conducting the livestream, the latter lending video gear for the event.

Above is the Legion’s livestream. Below some photos of the event and a gallery of other shots from around town.
