Passionate about Canadian history, Andy Wylie strived to help Vernon remember on Remembrance Day.
“We’ve got to celebrate these men,” said Wylie. “They’re marching from the outskirts of living memory into history and if we don’t celebrate them and grasp onto those parts, the history will be lost.”
Friday, Wylie set up two large spotlights in the form of a V to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the battle at Vimy Ridge.
For Saturday and Sunday night, he set up four spotlights, which could be seen at the Vimy Lane Memorial he built, located at 4008-29th Street in honour of Canadian soldiers. The lights were on from 7-11 p.m. both nights.
