Wayne Sundell, Bob Hamelin and Laverne Asselstine were among members of the Sylvan Lake branch of the Royal Canadian Legion who planted crosses on the graves of veterans at Lakeview Cemetery Monday, in advance of Remembrance Day.
The group, which also included Gordon Graham, Cliff Halvorson, Butch Bouchard, Larry Neis and Warren Pubanz, placed the crosses on 115 graves in the cemetery. Crosses were also placed on eight graves at Kuusamo Cemetery, one at Burnt Lake and one at Alto Rest in Red Deer. The Legion branch is hoping to gather information about veteran’s graves at Benalto so they may be marked next year.
The Remembrance Day service in Sylvan Lake takes place Sunday (Nov. 11) at the multiplex beginning at 10:30 a.m.
