Surrey remembers

Hundreds gather for Remembrance Day ceremonies in front of the Cenotaph at Surrey Museum Plaza.

Hundreds gathered at the Cenotaph at Surrey Museum Plaza in Cloverdale today to remember the sacrifices of Canada’s servicemen and women and to pray for peace.

Veterans and members of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 were joined by a large contingent of RCMP officers, emergency services personnel, air, navy and army cadets, Scouts, Guides at the services, which included prayers and the laying of wreaths in memory to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Cloverdale United Church Choir and the RCMP’s E Division Pipe band played music selections.

And vintage aircraft flying in formation performed three memorable flypasts over the plaza – the last one timed to the final moments of the ceremony.

After the service, the Colour Party led a parade back to the Cloverdale Legion, where participants warmed up with coffee, tea, hotdogs and other refreshments, and reminisced.

The gathering at Branch 6 was expected to last all day, with performances starting at 3 p.m.

Surrey Museum and Surrey Archives – located on either side of Museum Plaza – opened their doors from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., welcoming visitors inside for Remembrance Day activities and informative displays.
