The Royal Canadian Legion Merritt Branch 096 planned for a much smaller yet heartfelt ceremony. Changes to the 2020 commemoration included:
• Wreaths brought forward by a member of the RCMP and positioned at the cenotaph by a Legion representative.
• No members of the Cadets or Junior Rangers were present due to COVID. Rocky Mountain Rangers out of Kamloops will be assuming the role of the cenotaph Honor Guard.
• The area around the cenotaph and parking lot between City Hall and Civic Centre was cordoned off and only those participating in the ceremony were allowed in the immediate area.
