Remembrance Day Activities at the Fort St. John Legion

Tomorrow Canadians will pause again to commemorate the war time sacrifices, past and present, of members of the armed forces and civilians.

Local Remembrance Day Ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 10:00am, with the annual parade which will head down 100th street to 103rd avenue and then over to 102nd street and back to the Legion. Any organization is welcome to participate in the parade and is asked to be in front of the legion by 9:50am.

The Parade will be followed by the traditional ceremonies at the cenotaph in the Legion parking lot and, then the annual service at the Legion hall. The remainder of the day will be full of socializing in the Legion lounge, including games, a supper and dance. Of course the entire day is open to the public and are encouraged to attend this important day of Remembrance.

As in past years, Moose-FM Radio will present a two hour special Remembrance Day program beginning at 9am and, followed by the traditional two minutes silence at 11.
