WINDSOR JUNCTION: Crowds gathered at three cenotaphs in the area on Remembrance Day to honour those Veterans past and present, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

In Beaver Bank, Windsor Junction, and Waverley the crowds were large as residents turned out in droves–despite the chilly weather–to show their respect and what those Veterans meant to them.

Reporter Pat Healey was able to cover the Windsor Junction service, and once it was over made his way to the Waverley Legion where he took in some of the Halifax Pipe Band performance.

Meanwhile, Beaver Bank resident Tina Schwartz gave The Laker a helping hand by snapping photos at their service, held at the cenotaph at the Beaver Bank-Kinsac Community Centre.
