The crowds are expected to be bigger for Remembrance Day services this year, given that it’s the 100th anniversary since the end of World War One.
Vernon’s ceremony will be held at Kal Tire Place Sunday.
It’s being put on by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 25 (Vernon) in partnership with the City of Vernon.
