A Remembrance Day service was held with limited attendance on Thursday at Thunderbird Memorial Square.

Attendance was by invitation only, but the ceremony was live-streamed on the City of Abbotsford website.

Wreaths were placed on the cenotaph, and the master of ceremonies announced the names of the local businesses, clubs and other organizations that purchased wreaths.

Funds raised from the purchase of the wreaths go to the Legion Poppy Fund.

The fund assists those who have served or are currently serving in the Canadian Forces – and their families – with housing, education, counselling and other services.

The ceremony also included a parade and two minutes of silence at 11 a.m.
