Remembrance Day in North Vancouver usually begins with a parade from the North Vancouver Armoury to the Cenotaph. Starting at around 9:20 am the JP Fell Pipe Band leads a fairly large procession of veterans, cadets, and Canadian Armed Forces personnel from the Armories to the Cenotaph.
The parade route usually heads east along 15th Street and across Lonsdale Avenue to St. Georges. It then turns down St. Georges Avenue and past the local RCMP Detachment (at 147 East 14th Street) and City of North Vancouver Fire Station #1 (at 165 East 13th Street) where RCMP officers and firefighters join the procession. The parade then continues down St. Georges to Victoria Park at East Keith Road where the official ceremonies take place from around 10:30 until 11:30 am.
At the end of the ceremonies the parade usually begins once again. The pipe band, veterans and other participants march from Victoria Park, up Lonsdale Avenue, west along 15th Street and back to the JP Fell Armories on Forbes Avenue.
Our Branch is hosting an Open House so the community is welcome into our Branch. We have Linda Jones performing from 1:00pm to 3:00pm and children are welcome in the club until 4:00pm. After this, they will need to retire to our rental room.
