The High River Legion will be front and centre again for Remembrance Day services Sunday, November 11.

Legion President Bob Collins says paying tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War and the women who stayed behind during Canada's conflicts will be centre stage this year.

"They always say behind a good man is a woman. That we have to recognize, and we will. Yeah, it's a special moment. And for some veterans it's kind of a tearful type of time, because they're remember their buddies. I mean, they remember them, but it sort of brings it more to the forefront."

The Legion veterans will march to the Highwood Memorial Centre at 9:45 Sunday morning, with services beginning at 10 a.m. and ending shortly after 11 a.m.

Once the services are done, the veterans will march back to the Legion, where Collins says all are welcome to come and talk to the veterans and share the day.
