Members of the community gathered at the Estevan Comprehensive High school today as dignitaries, members of the armed forces and many others honoured those who paid the ultimate price.
The service started with the marching in of the dignitaries followed by the Colour Guard.
Last Post was played followed by two minutes of silence.
Past President Troy LeBlanc then read the names from the Roll of Honour.
He also recited the Act of Remembrance and Flanders Field which featured a veteran literally passing the torch to a younger Army Cadet.
"They shall grow not old, as we are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them."
The Act of Remembrance
This year, as a way to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, Major Craig Bird gave a presentation on some of the history of World War I. He also displayed memorabilia from the war which people were encouraged to look over.

Both the service and laying wreaths took place in the school gymnasium this year. Groups representing government, businesses, and service groups were in attendance to lay wreaths at the crosses, representing a fallen soldier from the area.
The public is also invited to the cenotaph tonight at 5 pm to hear the bells toll 100 times, for every year since the guns went silent.
