On Friday, November 7th Remembrance Day assemblies were held across our school district to honour those who served and sacrificed for our country during times of war.
Remembrance Day is marked with great solemnity and respect at all of our schools. This year, I attended the ceremony at Argyle Secondary which included music, poetry, and dance. I was impressed with the calibre of the performances and how well the audience respectfully listened during the entire assembly.
As schools are closed for the November 11th holiday, you might consider attending the North Vancouver commemoration ceremonies on Tuesday, November 11 at 10:30 a.m. at the Victoria Park Cenotaph. Following the ceremonies a parade of veterans and other participants will proceed northbound on Lonsdale to 15th, turning on 15th Street to arrive at the Armories on Forbes Avenue.
