It’s the third year that Vancouver students participated in the “No Stone Left Alone” remembrance ceremonies.

No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation is dedicated to honouring and remembering Canada’s veterans.  The ceremonies, which take place in cemeteries across Canada during Remembrance Week, are aimed at providing students and youth with “an authentic experience that creates knowledge, understanding and appreciation of those who serve and of the sacrifice of Canada’s fallen.”
