Remembrance Day: Voice salutes those who serve

Voice would like to take this opportunity to honour and remember the generations of women and men, past and present, who have served our country during times of war, conflict and peace and those who continue to serve.

Remembrance Day Ceremonies in New Westminster will be held on Thursday, November 11 at the Royal Westminster Regiment Armoury.

Participants are requested to assemble in the Armoury at 9:30 am for the Memorial Service which will begin at 10:00 am. Doors to the Armoury will be closed at 9:45 am. The memorial address will be delivered by His Grace the Duke of Westminster.

Overflow seating will be provided at Queens Avenue United Church. The Church will open at 8:30 am and the public will be able to watch and listen to the Ceremonies taking place in the Armoury.

Following the ceremonies, there will be a parade to the Cenotaph at the front of City Hall. At the Cenotaph, the two minutes of silence will be observed at 11 am. This will be followed by the wreath laying ceremony and the march past on Royal Avenue.

We would also like to acknowledge the successful opening of Honour House here in New Westminster and congratulate those responsible for making this project a reality.
