Changes to Remembrance Day ceremonies

No two-minutes of silence in Agassiz school ceremony, only at cenotaph

The Agassiz Legion has made efforts to shorten the Remembrance Day program this year and return it to a Legion Service, and that means some changes should be noted.

Poppies will not be laid for each of the Honour Roll members, nor will there be any representation of clergy, except for Rev. Mary Duncan, Chaplain of the Legion.

The program will start at 10 a.m. in the AESS gymnasium, and should be finished within a half hour. There will be no two minutes of silence observed at the school this year.

The parade will form up outside the school and march to the cenotaph in time to be there for the two minutes silence at 11 a.m., as is the custom.

The parade will also have an `eyes right` as they pass a revueing stand, occupied by the two Mayors and any other dignitaries that may be present. The parade will be under the guidance of Capt. Cameron Hull, Commanding Officer of the 1789 Royal Westminster Regiment of Army Cadets.

Wreaths will be presented after the two minute silence and appropriate music. After the first few presentation, they will be presented two at a time, going in one path and out the other.

Jim Johnson said while they recognize that those attending the school service only, will miss out on the two minute silence.

The Legion is hoping for community feedback after the event is finished.
