Parade moves from AESS to cenotaph

Monday's Remembrance Day ceremony will follow tradition

Remembrance Day will carry on in the same tradition this year, starting out at the AESS gymnasium, with a parade moving to the cenotaph afterward.

The ceremonies will begin at 10 a.m. in the gymnasium, with Rev. Mary Duncan, chaplain of the Agassiz Legion, speaking.

The Agassiz Christian School Choir will join the AESS band to offer some Remembrance-themed music, said Jim Johnson, the Legion’s past president.

Just like last year, there will be no two minute silence at the school. At 10:30 a.m., the parade will move off from the school and make its way to the cenotaph, across from the A&W.

A two minute silence will be observed at 11 a.m., along with Taps and the Reveille.

This will be the first year since 1980 that Bob Tunbridge will not be performing on the bugle. That task will be taken up this year by the new music teacher at AESS, Gord MacLeod.

Following the service at the cenotaph, the Legion will be open to everyone for a free meal including hot dogs and refreshments. This is the only day the Legion is open to those under age, Johnson said.
