The trenches, in song and story. On Saturday, Nov. 8, 6pm in the Merritt library, the Community Choir joins Greg Dickson & Mark Forsythe who will talk about their book, From the West Coast to the Western Front, compiled from stories, artifacts and photos shared by CBC Radio’s BC Almanac listeners. Almost 56,000 men & women from BC served “King and Country” during the Great War. More than 6,200 of them died in battle. At least 335 men & women from the Nicola Valley served, with 45 of them not returning. Sponsored by Nicola Valley Museum and the Merritt Library.
