"It's a time of remembering, reflecting, and honouring our veterans."

That was one of the responses to the question 'What does Remembrance Day mean?' on Wednesday, as thousands attended services across the Humboldt area.

"Its pretty cool to have a day where you can just remember the soldiers. Making this country a free country, so we can live a happy life."

On Tuesday, schools across the Horizon School Division had ceremonies (pictured below) honouring our veterans, due to closures on Wednesday.

In Humboldt, Wednesday's Remembrance Day event got underway with the traditional Last Post, two minutes of silence, and Reveille.

From there, the laying of the wreaths took place.

Venues changed for the afternoon, as the Legion Hall hosted lunch, a social, and museum tours. Humboldt's own Horse's Mouth provided entertainment with the day being capped off by a supper.
