Fort Langley Remembrance Day ceremonies on November 11th usually involve a procession, a service and a flyover by the Fraser Blues Flying Team.
Fort Langley Remembrance Day Ceremonies
Similar to other years, in 2019 the Remembrance Day event in Fort Langley took place at the Fort Langley Cemetery at 23105 St. Andrews Street. Ceremonies began with a procession at 10:25 am through the cemetery to the cenotaph. This was followed by a service and a flypast by the Fraser Blues.
In 2019 a Remembrance Day tribute also took place in the gardens located directly across from the St. Andrews Cemetery at 23105 St. Glover Road. Displays included ceramic poppy sculptures from local artist Julie Bourne. Folk were welcome to explore the displays, light a candle and plant poppy seeds in remembrance of fallen soldiers.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the general public was not able to attend any in-person ceremonies in 2020. The event was livestreamed though so everyone had the opportunity to watch it from home. Hopefully the 2021 ceremonies will be open to the public.
For more details about the above event in normal years, see the BC Legion website.
