Friday, November 10 -  We are in Whistler and join in at a very special ceremony unveiling the newly relocated and reconditioned cenotaph at the Olympic Plaza in that community.  The Rotary Club of Whistler has been the major work force in this initiative, that has seen the cenotaph moved from its former location at the Fire Hall to this much better spot.   President Ken Martin joins the Mayor and a few other very special guests in talking about why this is important for the community.   The Rotary club hosts a hot chocolate and cookies reception following the ceremony.   The plaque noting this as a project of the Rotary Club of Whistler adorns the new monument.
Next day, November 11, is Remembrance Day and the location shines as a very large crowd takes in the local Remembrance Day Ceremony at the new site.   Once again the Rotary Club of Whistler provides a nice public reception after the service.   Many in the crowd are heard to comment on how the crowd is at least double over past years and how well the new location works.
