Large turnout for Remembrance Day at Cloverdale Cenotaph

As expected, a huge crowd gathered in Surrey Museum Plaza Monday for Remembrance Day ceremonies.



Surrey Museum Plaza was filled to capacity, with the crowds spilling out onto the lawn and beyond Monday as hundreds turned out for Remembrance Day ceremonies in Cloverdale.

Along with veterans, air and army cadets, large contingents of RCMP and emergency service personnel took part, including paramedics and firefighters.

The Cloverdale United Church Choir sang several selections, and the RCMP E Division Pipe Band was on hand for the Nov. 11 service and ceremonies, which included observing two minutes of silence to remember the sacrifices of Canada’s fallen servicemen and women, and the laying of wreaths at the Cloverdale Cenotaph.

The gathering was treated to two flypasts of vintage military aircraft in formation.

The Colour Party from Cloverdale Legion Branch 6 led the parade back to the legion hall.
