Many Fort residents and their families gathered at the Fort Saskatchewan Legion for the Remembrance Day ceremony.
It was an emotional morning as people paid their respects for those who have fallen in the line of duty.
"Having served in the military, being oversees, I've seen what we do," said Todd Arsenault, an executive with the Fort Saskatchewan Legion. "I did lose a couple of people that I worked with, that I knew quite well, so it touches home a little bit."
This year's parade was led by a semi truck, rather than the tank (Catherine), as the Lord Strathcona's Horse regiment out of CFB Edmonton was tasked to the parade being held at the Butterdome.
During the laying of the wreaths, a number of children from Girl Guides and Scouts were also invited to participate.
"That's our way of connecting with our youth, by allowing them to participate more than just in the parade, but by laying a wreath," added Arsenault. "They might not understand the significance of it, but it allows them to participate in the ceremony in a more intimate way."
The ceremony was followed with a service as well as refreshments.
