KAMLOOPS — The Cenotaph clocks are officially ticking at Memorial Hill Park. 

The clock hands were turned on near the end of Sunday's ceremony honouring the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

The power-up marked the end of the one-year cenotaph restoration project where new clock faces, lighting, and benches were installed at the memorial site.

A Kamloops woman who donated $50,000 dollars towards the project was chosen to turn the clocks on alongside her aunt and grandson. 

The event marked the clocks first movement in close to 100 years.
