Remembrance Day ceremony to be open to the public
The Remembrance Day ceremony at Cranbrook’s Rotary Park and Cenotaph November 11 will again be open to the public.
Royal Canadian Legion member Derek Kortschaga announced on social media: “We are pleased to announce that Edith has been in discussions with Mayor Lee Pratt and our Remembrance Day ceremonies at Rotary Park will be going ahead this year.
“The parade participants will be lining up behind the Credit Union and marching to the Cenotaph were we will have our ceremonies and wreath laying. Unlike last year, this will be open to the public.”
The Cranbrook Legion lounge will be open on November 11 with limited capacity. Proof of vaccination will be required.
“Once again everything will depend on any further restrictions announced by the Provincial Health Officer,” Kortschaga concluded.
