We, at the Port Moody Legion #119, are very proud of the efforts and respect that we put forth to honour our Veterans and their families on this very special day of Remembrance. Although we are currently closed for redevelopment, we must and shall continue the tradition to mark this very important day.
The Community attendance on the street on the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month is historically over 4000 strong and growing every year
Over 500 Cadets, Scouts, Girl Guides and Brownies join our Colour Party, Veterans, Legion member and First Responders to participate in the parade around the block to ultimately stop at the cenotaph for the official Act of Remembrance and Two-Minute Silence followed by the laying of the wreaths. We are extremely fortunate to have the world famous Simon Fraser Pipe and Drum Band parade every year; this being the 35th Anniversary of their attendance at our Nov 11th ceremony. We have the proud distinction of being the only Legion in Canada to present a 21-Gun Cannon salute, performed by the Seymour Artillery.
Let us take this opportunity to extend an invitation for you to attend our upcoming events for our Poppy Drive and Nov 11th Act of Remembrance and festivities at the Port Moody Legion and Kyle Centre.
On October 30th to Nov.11th our Branch will be Poppy Tagging in our Community.
If you wish to volunteer to help with this campaign, please contact the office at 604-936-1312, Poppy Chair Margaret Walline 778-989-8404 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on our website legion119.ca. Your participation is your duty and is greatly appreciated.
