The moment of silence know as Remembrance Day returns to Rossland this Monday.

It is the day to recall all of the men and women who have died serving the country while in the armed forces, to honour their sacrifice, and to look forward to more peaceful times. Remembrance Day is observed to recall the end of the First World War on Nov. 11, 1918.

The Service of Remembrance in Rossland is at 11 a.m. at the cenotaph outside of the Rossland Library on Columbia Avenue and will include the sounding of the Last Post, followed by the period of silence—at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, marking the time when the armistice became effective—broken by the sounding of The Rouse and finished by a recitation of the Ode of Remembrance.

The service also includes wreaths laid to honour the fallen, a blessing, and the national anthem.

The day will unfold as follows:

  • • Church service at the Legion, 10 a.m.
  • • March to the cenotaph, 10:45 a.m.
  • • Cenotaph service, 11 a.m.: includes Last Post; moment of silence; laying of wreaths
  • • March back to Legion, 11:40 a.m.
  • • Noon onwards: Legion ladies serving hot stew. Entertainment all afternoon, including the Harmaniacs, the Trail Pipe Band, Katie Shaw dancers and the Golden City Fiddlers
