Residents are invited to join Mayor Richard Atwell, council and a list of dignitaries for the District of Saanich’s annual Remembrance Day Ceremony today at the Cenotaph in front of Saanich Municipal Hall.
The Reynolds secondary band will play the national anthem – their longstanding commitment to the event – and the Greater Victoria Police Pipe Band will lead the military contingent, a combination of the 3005 Army Cadets, 11 Field Ambulance and the 39 Service Battalion, as well as eight to 10 of the Ashton Amoury’s vintage military vehicles.
Several scout, cub and girl guide outfits will also be in attendance.
The service starts at 10:45 a.m. (at 770 Vernon Ave.). B.C. Transit is free for all Canadian Forces personnel, both past and present, on Nov. 11.
