Charles Hoey Park in downtown Duncan was packed on Saturday, Nov. 11, for the annual Remembrance Day ceremonies.

Legion members, service clubs and more crowded around the cenotaph for a moment of silence, and a brief service, including a laying of wreaths around the monument. There was also a fly past.
