The freedoms so many of us enjoy today are in thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

On Sunday, we remembered those heroes – those who have passed, the few left to tell their stories of war and those who bravely continue to fight for our freedoms.

During Remembrance Day, services were held in a number of communities, including Coldstream.

Many local schools and youth groups also paid tribute Friday with their own special ceremonies and events.
