First responders are expected to attend the Aldergrove Legion Remembrance Day ceremony on Wednesday.

Aldergrove’s Remembrance events include art

A formation flying team overhead, potluck, and paintings will add to the Branch 265 ceremony.

A unique addition to the Aldergrove Royal Canadian Legion Branch 265 observation of Remembrance Day includes paintings by local artists.

Madeline Roach, secretary of the branch, noted there are about 20 works of art at the Legion at 26607 Fraser Hwy.

“A Langley arts club has done Remembrance Day paintings,” Roach said. “They are in our conference room and people can come before, during, or after the Remembrance Day event to see them. The theme for all of them was remembrance.”

Roach added that the paintings are for sale, not just on display.

The celebration on Wednesday will begin with parade mustering at 268th Street and Old Yale Road at 10:40 a.m. Marching west, the group led by the colour party will arrive at the Aldergrove Legion and the ceremony will begin at about 10:50 a.m.

“The service and ceremony will be held outside at the cenotaph,” commented Roach.

Two minutes of silence will be observed prior to the laying of wreaths and official presentation.

There will also be a fly-past by the Fraser Blues formation flying team.

“Afterwards the lounge is open to the public,” Roach noted. “The Fraser Valley Community Winds will be performing.”

There will also be a potluck lunch and dancing to the music of Brian Zalo from 3 to 8 p.m.
