Etta Svendson was assisted by Carol Baragar as she laid a wreath during the Remembrance service at Sylvan Lake Lodge last Thursday. Six of her brothers and her father were all in the services. Svendson is one of two people temporarily at the lodge from High River waiting to return to their facility in the southern community after it was damaged by flooding in the summer.

At the same service, Ernest McPhee laid a wreath on behalf of residents of Bethany Sylvan Lake. Representing the Legion at the ceremony were Gordon and Sharon Graham.
