Remembering Those Lost

It is because of the veterans who fought for this country and its future, that we are able to live the incredible life we do here in West Vancouver, and in Canada.

They are the true heroes, along with those currently serving in the Canadian Armed Forces who continue to work tirelessly around the globe supporting others in the quest for safety and peace.

The Royal Canadian Legion, West Vancouver Branch, holds the sacred trust of ensuring the tradition that Remembrance Day is observed by Canadians every year at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month. There will be a parade at 10:45 a.m. starting at 18th Street, which will follow Marine Drive to the cenotaph at Memorial Park, which is located across the street from the West Vancouver Memorial Library.

A service will follow, and is a way for the public to stand together in remembrance. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

Gathering people together to honour our veterans, the Friends of the Library will host their Remembrance Day Reception in the Library with light refreshments, and music performed by the Dundarave Players. You will also be able to view the Veteran to Remember display, watch veteran interviews, and can even make Valentines for Veterans in the Youth Department.

Please join members of council for this important Remembrance Day Ceremony on November 11, as we honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Lest we forget.
