A glowing tribute

Candlelight ceremony for members of Armed Forces on Saturday.

The public is invited to a Candlelight Tribute this weekend, in honour of those who have served and continue to serve for peace and freedom.

The event is to begin at 4:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 7 at Victory Memorial Park Cemetery, 14831 28 Ave., when 2,000 candles will be lit and placed upon veterans’ grave sites and the cenotaph in a commemorative ceremony symbolizing the “passing of the torch of remembrance.”

People are invited to participate by placing a candle in silent tribute and sharing a moment of remembrance.

The candles will burn into the night, offering a silent, glowing tribute to current members of the Canadian Armed Forces who are serving, and to those who served in the past.

The cemetery is to remain open all night for the public to view the lit candles.

For more information, call Bonnie MacMillan at 604-374-2232.
