Valemount Remembrance Day 2020 Virtual Ceremony
Submitted by Royal Canadian Legion Branch 266
There will be some changes to this year’s Remembrance Day ceremonies.
The public are encouraged to not attend at the cenotaph. The Valemount ceremony will be broadcast live on Youtube at https://youtu.be/6-1bQUBf3Tg and will be posted on Branch 266’s Facebook page. Ceremonies will begin at 10:50.
We are encouraging a couple ways to show your respect on Remembrance Day. Join us for 2 minutes of silence on your front step or a silent drive by tribute past the Legion. For those that normally sponsor and place a wreath in memory of a family member, we will be able to accommodate that on an individual basis after the ceremony. Please contact Pete Pearson at 250-566-1115 to arrange.
Our Poppy Campaign has started and Poppy trays are in place in local businesses and we appreciate their support during these unusual times. We thank You for your continued support of Branch 266 and our Veterans, past, present and future! We Will Remember Them!
