The Remembrance Day service in Abbotsford will again have limited attendance this year.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the service on Thursday, Nov. 11 will be by invitation only at Thunderbird Memorial Square, as it was in 2020.
Wreaths that were purchased through the Royal Canadian Legion will be delivered on the day of the service, and a cadet will place them on the cenotaph.
During the ceremony, the master of ceremonies will announce the names of the local businesses, clubs and other organizations that purchased wreaths.
The wreaths are no longer available to purchase, but funds raised go to the Legion Poppy Fund.
The fund assists those who have served or are currently serving in the Canadian Forces – and their families – with housing, education, counselling and other services.
The Remembrance Day ceremony for Abbotsford can be viewed at abbotsford.ca/remembrancelive starting at 10:45 a.m. on Nov. 11. It will include the parade, laying of wreaths and two minutes of silence at 11 a.m.
For more information, call the Abbotsford Legion at 604-853-1711.
