With the official date falling on a Saturday this year, many Remembrance Day ceremonies have been held over the past week. Local Legions, including Kindersley's Branch #57, have been part of in-school ceremonies and other tributes around town.

Kindersley Legion president Scott Holloway gave a run-down of his week so far. 

"Once again it's that time of year, Remembrance Day, and so we have a fair bit going on. We've been going to schools the past couple days," said Holloway who will be present at Thursday's ceremony at Kindersley Composite School. 

Thursday was a busy one.

"One of the things we'll be doing (Thursday) as well is going out to the cemetery and putting lights on the grave markers, as well as new flags. Members of the public are welcome to go by and see them in the evenings to get a sense of the contributions of veterans to our community."

The week will culminate with Remembrance Day itself on Saturday. Holloway shared details for their annual service.

"Service is going to be at the Clearview Community Church. We are going to be marching from the Legion to the church starting at about 10:40 AM." said Holloway as the service will begin shortly after. "Looks like we will have good participation from first responders and others from the community."

Afterwards they will be taking the service to a pair of local seniors homes.

"Caleb Village at 2:00, and then at the Manor at 3:00 we will have a service for the residents, since they can't make it out to the main service that easily we can bring it to them."

Everybody has a connection a veteran. Kindersley's service is just one of many set to remember around the province and Canada as a whole.
