There are a couple of ways for people to commemorate Remembrance Day in Timmins.

On Nov. 11 there are services at the Timmins cenotaph, as well as at the South Porcupine Legion.

A parade is marching from the Timmins Armoury to the Timmins cenotaph at Hollinger Park starting at 10:45 a.m. The 45-minute ceremony starts at 11 a.m. Brunette Road will be closed for the ceremony.

At the South Porcupine Legion Branch 287, 46 Legion Dr., the parade is forming at 10:40 a.m. with the ceremony starting at 11 a.m.

If you are staying at home to watch a service, Canada Remembers is live broadcasting from Menin Gate in Belgium. Maj. Stephen Wyatt, who is originally from Timmins, is participating in the ceremony as a guard commander with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry.
