Lakesiders honor veterans

Several hundred Chapala area expats paused this week to honor veterans of the armed services at ceremonies commemorating the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice ended the bloody hostilities of World War I.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Royal Canadian Legion Lake Chapala Branch and the 904 Wing of the Canadian Air Force Association gathered for a Remembrance Day service in San Antonio Tlayacapan, while American Legion Post 7 hosted a Veterans Day program in Chapala.

Both events were followed by social gatherings where those in attendance sported the traditional red poppy lapel pins symbolizing a tribute to fallen heroes.
