Commemorating the end of WWI with the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #36 with a special Livestream event.

To comply with COVID-19 requirements and to keep vulnerable community members safe, the parade will be by vehicle this year, and both the parade and service are by invitation only. In a change to usual practice, the service will be held at the Cemetary Cenotaph this year instead of at the Cenotaph at the Courthouse. Wreaths will be laid on the graves of fallen soldiers. 

Legion Members are welcome at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #36 from 10:45am - 3pm to watch the Livestream.

The Legion will be open to the public from 3pm. 

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:

10.45am: Livestream available on Fernie Legion Facebook Page, vehicle parade departs from Fernie Legion through Downtown Fernie to the Fernie Cemetary. 
10.55am: Service & wreath-laying at the Fernie Cemetary Cenotaph Livestreamed on Facebook. In person attendance by invitation only. 
11am: 2-minute silence.
3pm: Legion open to the public. 

Remembrance Day is a public holiday in Canada. 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
