Remembrance Day service in Cloverdale expected to draw hundreds

Hundreds are expected to gather Monday for Surrey's largest Remembrance Day ceremonies to pay their respects and to remember.

Veterans are joined by RCMP

Cloverdale hosts Surrey’s largest Remembrance Day service on Monday, when hundreds will gather in Surrey Museum Plaza to pay their respects.

The ceremony begins at 10:15 a.m., with a parade of local veterans from the Cloverdale Legion making their way to Surrey’s World War I Cenotaph.

They will be joined by RCMP officers, emergency services personnel, navy and air cadets, Scouts, Girl Guides and others in honouring fallen service men and women.

There will be a service, prayers, and two minutes of silence observed at 11 a.m. to remember those who sacrificed their lives in military service. Flypasts featuring vintage war planes in formation will soar overhead.

The ceremonies of remembrance are followed by the traditional laying of wreaths. Following the service, the colour party will lead the parade back to the branch where members and guests will gather for refreshments and entertainment.
