City hosts live stream of event with limited attendance

Abbotsford took time to remember in a uniquely 2020 way during Remembrance Day ceremonies on Wednesday morning.

A virtual “Remember in Place” ceremony was streamed live on the City of Abbotsford YouTube channel from Thunderbird Memorial Square on earlier today from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Due to public gatherings being limited to 50, only a small number of invited people were in attendance at the event.

Wreaths were laid at the ceremony by a select few members of the legion and members of the local youth cadet corps also participated in the ceremony.

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