Remembrance Day Service
It was a beautiful day on November 11th, 2015 for the Remembrance Day Service and Parade at the Grandview Cenotaph on Commercial drive. The weather brought out the crowds both young and old to the remembrance service which was officiated by Master of Ceremonies, Gerry Vowles, 2nd Vice President of Branch #179 and Past President of BC Yukon Command. Scriptures and Prayers were provided by Father Expedito Farinas with WO2 Mitchel Chow, 59 Vancouver Air Cadet Squadron, playing Last Post and Reveille.
