Ceremonies to be held in Cloverdale, Port Kells, Newton, Whalley, Crescent Beach and at Surrey Centre Cemetery

As the Legion’s annual Poppy Campaign continues, Remembrance Day is now around the corner. Many Surrey residents will attend ceremonies across the city on Nov 11.

“I encourage everyone in Surrey to get out to their local Remembrance Day services and support veterans,” said Earl Fraser, service officer for the Cloverdale Legion.

The City is reminding residents to arrive early to Remembrance Day ceremonies to find parking and to avoid road closures. (See below for complete list of closures.)

Fraser said there are always milestones that come up every year and it’s important for him to reflect on them and what they mean today.

Major milestones this year include: 80 years since World War II began in 1939; 75 years since the invasion of Normandy in 1944; 105 years since the outbreak of the Great War in 1914.

He’s also encouraging everyone that attends Remembrance Day services to head back to their local Legions afterwards.

“All are invited,” said Fraser. “It’s always a great atmosphere with food and music and camaraderie.”

The Cloverdale Legion is located at 17567 57 Ave.
