The Cenotaph in Hedley BC

June 1, 2013

Visit the memorial erected for the Hedley Boys who fought in both World Wars.

The entire town of Hedley turns out for a very emotional ceremony every November 11, Rememberance Day, hosted for the last several years by Pastor Graham Gore.

Businesses close for the hour, a procession comes from and returns to the Senior’s Center (formerly the OAPO) and hot tea, coffee and sandwiches are served. A wee drams of rum is poured on the side for those who wish to warm up from the November chill.
