Remembrance Day 2014

remember

Tomorrow we recognize Remembrance Day in Canada and in many parts of the world. November 11, at 11:00am many schools, businesses, and citizens will pause for 2 minutes of silence in recognition of the lives lost and the sacrifices made during times of war and by our Canadian soldiers on a daily basis. This year, taking a moment to recognize our soldiers and veterans is even more poignant in light of the recent events in Montreal and Ottawa, as well as 2014 being the one hundred year anniversary of the start of World War I. Here are some of the ways that you can participate in memorial services in London:

Remembrance Day March

The Remembrance Day March will take place at 10:40 at the Cenotaph on the corner of Dufferin Ave and Wellington St.

Remembrance Day Reception

Immediately after the cenotaph there will be a reception held at Centennial Hall. All are welcome to view exhibits and thank your local veterans. A luncheon will be held for all soldiers and veterans.

Remember Them: Royal Canadian Regiment Museum

The Royal Canadian Regiment Museum will be open on November 11 from 10:00am to 8:00pm. There will be a service held at the Cenotaph in the Parade Square within the Wolseley Barracks. Following the service there will be many activities and exhibits for visitors to interact with. The museum is located at 701 Oxford Street East.
