Kids included in Cloverdale Remembrance Day services

Remembrance Day in neighbouring Cloverdale incorporates history with arts and crafts to help honour veterans.

Cloverdale Branch 6 of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Surrey Museum and Surrey Archives are working together this Remembrance Day to ensure a special celebration.

Parade mustering begins at 10 a.m. at the legion at 17567 57th Ave. With the colour party leading the procession, the march to the cenotaph in Museum Square will begin at 10:35.

The RCMP Pipe Band and choirs from the local United church will perform at the service held in the square beginning at about 11 a.m. with two minutes of silence. There will also be a fly past by the Harvard Canadian War Birds.

Laying of wreaths will also be part of the Remembrance Day presentations.

Following the ceremony, the colour party will lead the parade back to the legion for refreshments and entertainment. Susie Francis and the Versatiles will perform from 1 to 3 p.m. and a number of other singers will also be on hand to entertain guests at the legion.

Families can spend time at the museum and archives for activities from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Children will be invited to make crafts like tissue paper poppies, harmony doves, or thank you post cards to be delivered to Lower Mainland veterans.

Hot chocolate and cookies will be served to keep everyone warm while they tap their toes to the music of the Hazelmere Heritage Fiddlers.

Second World War documentaries will play in the museum’s theatre and former Royal Canadian Navy member Gwen Settle talks from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. about the challenges faced by women during the 1960s, and Cold War secrets she learned.
