Americans mark the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War One on Sunday with celebrations ranging from high-tech light shows to somber gatherings in honor of the country's military veterans. "That event will mark the commemoration of the end of the war".

When the "War to End All Wars" ended on November 11, 1918 at 11 a.m., one London newspaper began its story: "Bells burst forth in joyful chimes". Mayor Gerald Aalbers says with no veterans remaining among us, the community must continue to find ways to honour those who were in the Great War.

This is being done as part of the Royal Canadian Legion's Bells of Peace initiative to have church bells across Canada ringing at sundown. Veterans Day falls on Sunday this year, so many Cowetans will be in church when the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month arrives.

Two Independence National Historic Park rangers have been given the honor of ringing the bell, Sarah Falch and Nicole Felmeth.
