Rememberance Day Service West Vancouver
Lest we forget... Sunday, November 11, 2012. Every year we troop down to the Memorial Service at the Cenotaph, across from the West Vancouver Library, located at 20th and Marine Drive. This service is to pay tribute to the men and women who have layed down their lives for the safeguarding of freedom and democracy. This is a very touching ceremony that always brings a lump to my throat. Rain or shine, the Memorial Day Parade is well attended, so make sure you get there early.
The parade begins at 10:45am followed by the service at 11am at the Memorial Arch. After the ceremony, refreshments are served in the library. Brush up on your Vera Lynn, as there is usually a sing-song as well. I hope you "pack up your troubles", and join the community at the Remembrance Day Ceremony.
