Hundreds expected at Remembrance Day ceremony in Cloverdale

Parade to lead off the ceremony at Surrey Museum Plaza.

Local veterans

A colour party from Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 and a parade of local veterans will lead off this year’s Remembrance Day ceremony in Cloverdale.

At 10:30 a.m., the parade will enter Surrey Museum Plaza, where they’ll be joined by members of the Surrey RCMP, the RCMP’s E Division Pipe Band, and serving members of the military, along with Surrey firefighters, emergency services personnel, and army, navy and air cadets, local Guides, Scouts, Sparks and Cubs.

The massive ceremony is held at Surrey’s World War I Cenotaph, beside the Surrey Archives building at 17671 56A Avenue. Bleachers will be set up to accommodate some of the crowds expected.

“It’s been growing every year,” Branch 6 president Frank Redekop said.

The ceremony includes a service, prayers, and two minutes of silence observed at 11 a.m. Flypasts featuring Harvard military aircraft and another by the Fraser Blues will soar overhead.

After the laying of wreaths of remembrance, veterans will lead the parade back to the Cloverdale Legion.

There, participants, friends and family will gather for food and refreshments.
