Remembrance Day services in Fort Langley are once again expected to attract big crowds.

Everyone is welcome at the Fort Langley Cenotaph for a Remembrance Service Nov 11. The procession will begin at 10:25 a.m. with the service starting at 10:40 a.m. A flypast by the Fraser Blues vintage aircraft team will occur about 11 a.m., said Andy Schildhorn, chair of the Fort Langley Remembrance Day Committee.

The procession begins at the west end of the Fort Langley Cemetery, near the intersection of St. Andrew’s and Nash Streets led by a piper and a colour party followed by members of the clergy, veterans, RCMP, Armed Forces Cadets, Fire Department, elected officials, Kwantlen elders, and members of the Scouting and Guiding movements. At that time all uniform service personal are invited to join the procession. It will make its way toward the Cenotaph following the gravel and grassed roadways within the cemetery’s boundaries, passing by the graves of close to 300 veterans buried in the cemetery.

“People already assembled near the Cenotaph will be able to view the procession as it approaches the site,” he said.

In support of being environmentally conscious participants, there are a limited number of printed copies of the programme available.

However participants will be able to access the programme digitally using a QR code scanner app on their smartphone, such as I-nigma or Scan.

“We are pleased to announce Elderly and Disability Parking will be available at 9084 Glover and at 9025 Glover (St. Andrew’s Church),” Schildhorn said.

The Fort Langley Remembrance Day Service is a joint project of the Fort Langley Remembrance Day Committee and the Fort Langley Lions Club.

This year again United Churches of Langley will be participating in the Remembrance Day Ceremony in Fort Langley, as the Langley community takes time to remember those who have served our country in wars.

Along with St. George’s Anglican Church and the Living Waters Church, St. Andrew’s United Church will be opening up their buildings to offer hospitality after the service, providing warm beverages and treats.
