The Community attendance on the street on the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month is historically over 4000 strong and growing every year.
Over 500 Cadets, Scouts, Girl Guides and Brownies join our Colour Party, Veterans, Legion member and First Responders to participate in the parade around the block to ultimately stop at the cenotaph for the official Act of Remembrance and Two-Minute Silence followed by the laying of the wreaths. We are extremely fortunate to have the world famous Simon Fraser Pipe and Drum Band parade every year; this being the 35th Anniversary of their attendance at our Nov 11th ceremony. We have the proud distinction of being the only Legion in Canada to present a 21-Gun Cannon salute, performed by the Seymour Artillery.
Let us take this opportunity to extend an invitation for you to attend our upcoming events for our Poppy Drive and Nov 11th Act of Remembrance and festivities at the Port Moody Legion and Kyle Centre.
