Remembrance Day in Kimberley

Air Cadets step up to keep Remembrance Day service in Kimberley

The symbol of Remembrance Day in Canada.

Since the loss of Kimberley’s Legion Branch a couple of years ago, the task of keeping Remembrance Day alive has fallen to the local Air Cadet squadron, assisted by Kimberley’s Elks Club.

This year’s Remembrance Day service will happen as it always does, at the Cenotaph across from the former Legion building.

The cadets have taken over organizing the parade, which will muster at the Elks Club at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, November 11, for arrival at the Cenotaph at 10:55 a.m.

Those marching can leave extra coats and personal items in the Elks Hall. The parade will leave the Elks, proceed into the Platzl on Deer Park and then head to the Centotaph.

Post-ceremony, the Elks invite one and all for lunch and fellowship at the Elks Hall. Please note, minors are welcome to attend.

Kimberley’s cadets are also selling poppies around town, and poppy donation jars can be found at many local businesses.
