Thousands of Langley residents are expected to show their respects at the three Remembrance Day ceremonies being held on Nov. 11 in Langley.
The services will take place at the Fort Langley, Langley City and Aldergrove cenotaphs.
In Fort Langley, a procession will start at 10:25 a.m. at the west end of the Fort Langley Cemetery, near the intersection of St. Andrew’s and Nash Streets. It will then 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. The service will begin at 10:40 a.m.
In Langley City, the procession begins at 10:25 a.m., at the Langley Legion at 206 Street and travels south to 56 Avenue, finishing at Douglas Park Cenotaph at 20550 Douglas Cres. The ceremony begins at 11 a.m.
The parade in Aldergrove leaves 268 Street and Old Yale Road at 10:25 a.m., heads south along 268 St. to Fraser Highway, then west to the Aldergrove Legion at 26607 Fraser Hwy.
The service starts at 10:40 a.m. It will be followed by a potluck lunch and entertainment at the Legion.
There is no formal service at the Murrayville Cemetery at 21405 44 Ave. but residents often gather at the cenotaph to pay their respects. Some 200 soldiers are buried there.
The Fraser Blues vintage aircraft team plans to do a flypast of all the ceremonies in Langley at or near the 11 a.m. mark.
