Emergency responders from across the region, Cranbrook municipal staff, members of the horse community, family, and friends will come together Saturday to remember a local couple.
A public memorial will be held at Western Financial Place for Cranbrook Fire Captain Clayton Murrell and the City’s Aquatic Supervisor Joan MacKinnon.
The husband and wife were killed after a head-on collision on highway three outside of Yahk earlier this month.
They were hauling two horses who also died in the incident.
Members of the public are invited but the City expects a large turnout for the service.
It starts promptly at 2:30PM and everyone is asked to be seated by 2:15PM.
Attendees should also be aware parking will be limited to the east and north lots and the south lot will be closed.
Parking is available in the Safeway parking lot and along 14th Avenue South.
Uniformed personnel vehicles will be set up on Baker Street by the high school and 14th avenue south.
